The International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) was founded in 1969 and works to save individual animals, animal populations and habitats all over the world. With projects in more than 40 countries, IFAW provides hands-on assistance to animals in need, whether it’s dogs and cats, wildlife and livestock, or rescuing animals in the wake of disasters. We also advocate saving populations from cruelty and depletion, such as our campaign to end commercial whaling and seal hunts.

CritterKin and “Cats, Dogs and Us”
Cultures around the world may vary, but one thing is common: wherever we find people, we also find cats and dogs. To help address the root causes of animal cruelty, IFAW has launched a new global educational program called Cats, Dogs and Us. The program introduces students ages 5-14 to the many different ways that people live with cats and dogs and helps develop knowledge, skills, and empathy and respect.
CritterKin worked with IFAW’s education team to produce an e-book for kids between the ages of 6 and 10. Called Poco a Poco, the book is based on actual events that occurred on an IFAW project in Cozumel, Mexico and chronicles the abandonment, rescue and rehoming of a mother dog and her puppy. It is being made available for FREE as part of the “Cats, Dogs and Us” program.
