Dogs Trust, the dog welfare charity, is now available to visit primary and Montessori schools, along with community groups in Clare and Galway, offering free, curriculum-linked workshops, teaching children about responsible dog ownership.
Dawn Kavanagh, a fully qualified secondary school teacher with a Masters in Animal Behaviour and Welfare, who just has taken the up the education officer role in Dogs Trust, will lead the programme in this region.
“Dogs Trust’s philosophy of never putting a healthy dog down is something I really admire, and especially needed here in Ireland. I truly believe the key to improving welfare for all animals is education, and Dogs Trust education programme is doing just that. This really is a dream role for me, combining my education and animal welfare passions,” said Dawn.
In underlining the importance of Dawn’s appointment to cover Clare and South Connacht, Dogs Trust executive director, Mark Beazley, said, “We have had a phenomenal response to our education programme and to date have visited over 90,000 Irish school children teaching them about responsible dog ownership”
