Welcome to the Kindness Program!
Congratulations to The Beatrice Watson-Acheson Foundation!
Forty-two years of teaching Humane Education in the schools in Toronto, Ottawa and Barrie areas. Thank you to all our dedicated Directors, Teachers and Kindness Dogs! Cameron's dream of teaching kindness and respect for all life, promoting responsible pet care, and encouraging children and adults to become more empathic and caring, has reached a milestone!
