Who Rescues Who is an Animal Rescue and is an educational facility that teaches children about animals in a way that will change their perspective about themselves and the world around them. We want to show children that even though we all look different, we are all the same insi de. Every living being has language and needs food, water, shelter and love.
We teach the children basic horsemanship and barn management, why roosters crow, why pigs love mud, why goats chew, and how each species communicates through body language. Here at Who Rescues Who
Since children naturally identify with animals, we can use interactions with animals to teach children how to behave towards other people. Often when children are abused, they turn their hurt around to abuse others or end up with the wrong crowd of friends doing bad in life . By teaching empathy and uniting kids with all life, our At - Risk Youth program helps turn these kids from the inner city int o protectors instead of abusers or worse.
We believe that our animals are particul arly helpful with these kids . First , the animals at Who Rescues Who all have histories of abuse, neglect, abandonment or worse. Often the children share similar pasts, and hearing the stories of the animals helps them see that change is possib le. as they see that the animals are safe here with us, the inner city youths begin to open up, as they too feel safe. Finally, we believe that animals, with their unconditional love and non judgmental attitude, can often reach kids more deeply an d effectively than people can. As the youths learn to love the animals, they simultaneously learn to love a part of themselves. As they learn to understand the animals, they learn to understand a part of themselves.
Identi fying with the animals at Who Re scues Who helps the youths feel safe. When we explore how our abused animals have learned to forgive and overcome their pasts, the animals become r ole models helping the youths reach their goals of surpassing their pain and reaching for their bright futur es.
