History

From Loss to Compassion & Empathy

The Pawtectors program was born from a tragic incident of animal abuse involving one of the founder’s beloved barn cats, perpetrated by a neighbor’s child. This senseless act of cruelty inspired the creation of our year-round youth animal compassion program, driven by the desire to prevent such injustices and promote empathy towards animals.

We offer a year-round online program that teaches and inspires animal compassion and empathy, as well as responsible pet ownership. Through our monthly self-paced courses and animal-related activities, we empower kids and teens to become advocates for animals, showing them that they can be voices for those who cannot speak.

Pawtectors believe that COMPASSION FOR ANIMALS = COMPASSION FOR HUMANS = COMPASSION FOR ALL! You can start in your backyard and community.  Just imagine it – a kinder society for humans and animals alike!

Pawtectors’ young voices CAN make that happen!

Thank you for letting us inspire your animal lovers to be Superheroes for Animals – companion pets, rescue/homeless & wildlife.
