The Animal Pad is excited to offer an education program that aims to cultivate and promote a positive connection between youth and animals throughout San Diego. We seek to make impactful connections with our community and create a healthy and safe relationship between youth and animals. We believe that all children deserve the opportunity to engage and create meaningful relationships with rescue dogs and learn how to respect, advocate, and show kindness to humans and animals.
These programs are led by Missy Waters, who has been volunteering with TAP for 3 years. In addition to her work with TAP, she has a masters in educational counseling with 5 years school based experience and 5 additional years of experience working with children in various other settings. This programs will be ran by other volunteers but materials are made by Missy.
