The NaturVet Foundation Field Trip Program

Our field trip program, which launched in April 2006, provides funds for transportation and educational resources at various district approved Humane Society locations. Our program further demonstrates the foundation’s commitment to educational support for America’s schools.

  • Teach children how to be responsible pet owners
  • Teach the positive effects of spaying and neutering
  • Teach the effects of pet over-population
  • Teach the proper care and needs of pets
  • Teach compassion for all animals

Children who learn how to treat pets responsibly will become adults who do not neglect, mistreat or discard animals. Over the past few years, with the help of generous donors like you, NaturVet Foundation has expanded its elementary school field trip program throughout San Diego and Riverside counties.

"The experience really opened my students’ hearts and minds."
