The K-9 Angels kick off their 2015 UK school tour

The K-9 Angels kick off their 2015 UK school tour

2015-03-03 
| by The Vegan Angels

 

On Wednesday the 25th of February, the K-9 Angels kicked off their 2015 UK School Tour and spoke to children at Scargill Infant School about responsible dog ownership and dog rescue.

 

 

The kids were amazing and it was such a such a fun and touching day. The children were so engaged and ask lots of questions. They absolutely loved meeting our rescue dogs Benjy, Penny and Elizabeth.

 

 

The K-9 Angels feel that pet care, responsible pet ownership and knowledge about rescue dogs should be part of the school curriculum. The keys things we spoke about were dogs environment, dogs diet, dogs health, behaviour and companionship. We spoke to 250 children for just an hour but we could have stayed all day as the children were so interested.

During the Q&A session with the older children, one girl stood up and made a very obvious but how profound statement saying 'Dogs Need Love' which made everyone's hearts swell. 

It really was an absolute joy and we are looking forward to our next school visit and revisiting Scargill Infant School again. 

 

 

A special thank you to the deputy head teacher Judy Munford for setting the visit up at her school. Judy is a wonderful lady and mummy to a K-9 Angels rescue dog too.

 

 

PLEASE REMEMBER: A dog is for LIFE! It is our responsibility to look after them all the time.

We have to:

  • Feed them the right things
  • Give them a bed and safe places
  • Make sure they are healthy
  • Give them exercise
  • Take them to the vet if they are poorly

 

We are undertaking this school tour to promote the benefits and responsibilities of animal ownership and will be talking in simple terms about the animals they rescue. We are passionate about our work with animals and believe that these messages about pet care should start with the very young.

 

Victoria and Pola would be happy to lead a school assembly on their work or talk in more detail with individual classes or groups of children. This may be negotiated from school to school. They would just ask for a voluntary donation towards their charity work and a contribution towards travelling expenses from London. If you would like a visit to your school please send a message to: victoria@k-9angels.co.uk or visit our website www.k-9angels.org
