MISSION

The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center strives to eliminate the suffering of homeless cats and dogs by providing humane care for pets in transition, facilitating adoptions to good homes, supporting pet overpopulation education, and supporting sterilization of companion animals.

OUR GIVE BIG CAMPAIGN

Here at the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center we are centered on saving the lives of homeless pets throughout and beyond the Inland Empire. As an adoption-guarantee facility, we feel it is our duty to inform the public about the care and welfare of companion pets through humane education.

What is humane education?

Humane education is the teaching of respect, kindness and compassion in relation to animal welfare, social justice and environmental issues. It can bring forth the longing and skill to live with compassion, integrity and wisdom, and can give the knowledge and tools to take action in meaningful ways that allow humans to live in a kinder world.

On a smaller scale, humane education teaches people how to properly care for and respect their pets, such as cats and dogs. It can be used as a device to explain the consequences of irresponsible behavior and encourage people to see the importance of living creatures other than ourselves.

More than ever we are realizing the connection between child abuse, animal abuse and violence towards one’s peers. The need to teach kindness and empathy through guided humane education programs is greater than ever. Humane education is the only educational method that recognizes how powerful the connection we have with nonhuman animals is and allows us to use that connection to share our humanity with others.

According to the National PTA Congress,

“Children trained to extend justice, kindness, and mercy to animals become more just, kind and considerate in their relations with each other. Character training along these lines will result in men and women of broader sympathies, more humane, more law-abiding-in every respect, more valuable citizens.”

Our Humane Education Program is multi-faceted to accommodate children K-12th grades. We offer:

  • Adoption Center Tours
  • ABCD Program-A Book, a Cat and a Dog Reading Program
  • Scout Badge Programs
  • Birthday Parties
  • School/Library Visits
  • To date we have impacted the lives of thousands of cats and dogs and hundreds of children. With your help we can continue to expand existing and develop new programs to reach even more.
