Unit Overview 

This unit encourages children to think about respect for pets and what they bring to the lives of human beings. They will understand that by providing animals with basic needs and treating animals with kindness and respect, they are demonstrating responsible pet care, environmental stewardship and acting as responsible citizens of the community.

Service Experience 
After conducting a needs assessment for a local animal shelter, learners will plan and implement a drive to collect specific needed items to donate to the shelter.
