P.E.A.C.E. Humane is a humane education program through the charity People Ensuring Animal Care Exists (P.E.A.C.E.)
At P.E.A.C.E. Humane we promote compassion for all through humane education. We are committed to offering innovative and ethical alternatives that keep animals out of the classroom, as well as providing a variety of resources that teach empathy and respect for animals (human and non-human) and the environment.
Educators, caregivers, and students across Canada will find material by P.E.A.C.E. Humane and other like-minded groups.
Canadian farm sanctuaries are young but fast growing in the non-profit space, promoting a great opportunity for educational tours to increase public awareness on animal care and welfare/protection. These programs and lesson plans have been created by P.E.A.C.E. Humane to support farm sanctuary operators, humane educators, parents, and teachers through the process of bringing young people to sanctuary.
