3. Encourage them to volunteer. Find ways to volunteer with animals. Get in contact with local shelters and animal rescues to learn more about their volunteer requirements and opportunities. Shelters are a great way to learn firsthand not only about the cruelty and abuse animals suffer, but also to see the healing power found in loving, playful interactions. These experiences won't just teach a greater compassion for animals. That compassion for animals can help improve kids' empathy for anything suffering abuse, animal or human.

If there are no opportunities at a shelter, try something simple like petsitting for a neighbor or family friend.
