THN’s Humane Library Project aims to source the best literature for children and young adults on animal welfare and then donate these books to Texas school districts with high instances of abuse and neglect to help them learn about animals and develop empathy. An important lesson in empathy is that animals are living beings and should be treated with respect and compassion. Teaching children how to care for animals correctly, with love and care, is an excellent way for our young people to develop empathy and prepare to be fantastic pet owners in the future. This project’s impact is far-reaching; empathy promotes moral intelligence, and morally intelligent people make decisions that benefit both themselves and the people around them.
