Pasado’s Safe Haven’s C.A.R.E. (Compassion for Animals, Respect for Everyone) program can reach students either inside the classroom or at our sanctuary. In either venue, our interactive format actively engages students with the concepts of compassion and empathy while practicing critical thinking on real-world issues.

Presentations and experiences will engage students with topics surrounding empathy, compassion, and consumerism and how we can impact the lives of animals, humans and the environment through our choices. Presentations are designed to help teachers meet national and state school curriculum standards wherever possible in English/Language Arts, Science, and Social studies/History.

The students who visit our 85-acre sanctuary will receive a guided tour where they will have the opportunity to meet some of our charming animal residents and learn about their rescue stories in addition to an engaging lesson plan.

Whether in the classroom or outside in nature, C.A.R.E. strives to bring individual animal stories to life in a way that strengthens empathy and compassion and makes a large, real-world issue feel more tangible and intimate. Our material gives students space to exercise critical thinking and contemplation while realizing that they can have an impact on our world.

If you would like more information about how your classroom could benefit from C.A.R.E. or to reserve space for your classroom today, please contact our Outreach Manager.


“Our students loved being able to see first hand the difference Pasado’s Safe Haven can make. TheyCARE INSCHOOL NORMA found it heartbreaking to learn about some of the cruelty animals face but truly appreciated the beautiful home Pasado’s Safe Haven is able to provide. This gave them a better understanding of how they can help protect animals and become involved if they witness abuse. It helps students develop compassion for all living things.” – C. Salisbury, 4th Grade Teacher at St. Catherine School Seattle

“Our students have a passion for animals and animal welfare.  Pasado’s Safe Haven tapped into that energy and really inspired our students with powerful stories and concrete information about how we can make a difference for animals.  And when we make a difference for animals, we make a difference for all of us.  Great presentation!” – J.S. Marysville Pilchuck High School teacher

“We had some great discussions about the ideas behind lifestyle choice!” -S.K. Lake Stevens Elementary School teacher
