Adoptables Art: Pet Painters Program Connects Students with Shelter Animals Palo Alto Humane partners with local school district art departments to connect young students with shelter animals through the visual arts. Under the guidance of school art teachers, students learn how to recognize the essence of another being, and their soulful paintings help promote the adoption of dogs and cats in local shelters. Through Adoptables Art, students become humane advocates, empathizing with the animals they draw and paint. View Art Gallery

Palo Alto Humane Animal Shelter Reading Program Palo Alto Humane provides the books, and local animal shelters provide the animals that allow children to bolster their confidence in reading. Our program is good for young readers who would benefit from reading aloud while connecting with and socializing shelter animals. Students can provide socialization to adoptable pets who could benefit from the interaction while learning more about how shelters help animals get adopted.
