DFW Rescue Me, a Dallas-based 501(c)(3) rescue organization, launched Voices for Justice after a four-month-old pit bull puppy was found having suffered terrible abuse. The puppy, named Justice by those who rescued and tried valiantly to save him, did not survive.* But his legacy lives on with a program that educates children about the proper treatment of animals in an effort to prevent future abuse.
Voices for Justice works hand-in-hand with local elementary schools to provide educational programs for students about treating pets like a member of the family – with love, care and respect.
- Classroom presentations hosted by DFW Rescue Me volunteers and featuring trained rescue dogs
- Certificates for students who take a pledge to treat pets with love, care and respect
- Educational take-home materials including fun giveaways to help reinforce messages outside the classroom
Voices for Justice was launched in May of 2012. It is backed financially by DFW Rescue Me’s Justice Fund and led by DFW Rescue Me board members.
