HOW YOUR DONATIONS ARE USED
EDUCATE. It is true for most people that, “when we know better, we do better.”* The Susie Spector Foundation strongly believes education is the key to improving the lives of animals. For that reason, a heavy emphasis is placed on our educational efforts.
B.A.R.C.: The Susie Spector Foundation’s Benchmark Animal Rehabilitative Curriculum (B.A.R.C.) is a national program designed to shape the awareness and future behavior of adults who have mistreated animals in the past. The only one of its kind, the B.A.R.C. program is an online, interactive course designed to enlighten participants about the required legal, moral, and practical commitments they have to animals. B.A.R.C. also instills an awareness about animals’ needs, and their capacity for experiencing pain and emotions.
CRITTER CHAT: Critter Chat is a question and answer column that offers readers advice on practical ways to handle day-to-day, real life situations involving animals. Critter Chat answers questions such as: What should I do if I come across an animal locked in a hot car? Why should I neuter my dog? What should I do about my neighbor’s dog, who won’t stop barking? What should I do if I don’t want my pet any longer? Critter Chat readers are educated about responsible pet ownership and the potential legal ramifications of their actions (or inaction). The advice readers receive via the column results in a better understanding of the proper treatment of animals and helps strengthen the relationship between animals and humans–and between humans and other humans.
