Hello, my name is Katelyn Vanderweyden. I have been an animal lover my entire life. As a child, I was always trying to bring home a new pet although my home was always filled with fuzzy critters from cats to a rescued greyhound.
As a teenager I became involved at a horse rescue where I eventually adopted my first horse. My passion for horses led me to want to share my knowledge with others. Through the years of teaching horseback riding, I developed a fondness for children. This fondness of animals, children and teaching is what led me to become the new humane educator at Animal Friends of the Valleys.
The AFV Humane Education Program has been developed to help foster attitudes of respect, compassion and kindness toward animals. It is in building compassionate experiences and attitudes that leads young people to compassionate actions. I invite you to contact me at Humane.Educator@animalfriendsofthevalleys.com or 951-674-0618 ext. 210.
