Humane education promotes compassion and respect for all living creatures. These organizations provide programs focused on teaching children and/or adults everything from animal care to wildlife and the environment. There are also programs that encourage children to improve their reading skills. Therapeutic riding programs use horses to help enhance the lives of people with disabilities.
