Hold a Disaster Preparedness Campaign
Often in disasters such as floods, fires or tornados, we forget to plan for our pets or livestock. Help your community prepare by explaining what they can do to keep their animals safe in an emergency.
Ideas for your Campaign
1.) Go to our Disaster Preparedness website to learn just what people should do for their different types of animals.
2.) Decide how you would like to run your campaign. Do you want to present to a group? Hang signs? Give out handouts?
3.) Create posters, emails, signs, handouts or even a video to help encourage people to prepare their pets for disasters.
4.) Make sure to track your service hours using any forms from your school.
5.) Take pictures of any presentations and save examples of signs or handouts you make for your interview with the Humane Educator.
Putting together your project summary to receive credit
Now that you have finished your campaign, it's time to get credit for all your hard work!
7.) Write a 1-2 page summary of your experience. Some things you may want to include are why you chose this project, if you enjoyed working on it, and how you feel you helped our animals.
8.) Schedule a 15 minute interview with the Humane Education Department by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
9.) At your interview, you should bring with you:
a. Your 1-2 page summary
b. Your completed Service Learning forms from your school
c. Pictures and examples from your campaign
d. Any forms from your school that need to signed by the Humane Eduactor
