How together we make a difference.
Our Humane Education program has grown since last year and is now a three-part series, where we visit each classroom three times to reinforce and build upon the lessons of compassion, responsibility, problem-solving, and taking action.
We visited various Animal Care Control Centers with some of our students and their families. The kids were excited to give the toys they had made with the donations from FIDM and Disney to the animals and see them light up. Shelters are not great places for animals, with limited resources and frequent over-crowding, but it makes such a difference for them to have things like toys to brighten their days and give them something to do while they wait for their forever homes. We are entering our third year and have reached over 9,000 students and counting!

Free & Low-Cost Community Spay/Neuter Services
In 2017, BAF hosted 34 mobile spay/neuter clinics, which altered and provided vaccines to over 1,400 animals. Over one year alone, this has prevented 11,200 animals from being added to the pet population. This number grows exponentially year after year, making this one of the most impactful ways of saving animals through prevention.
