The Humane Society of Ventura County is pleased to welcome Robin Satnick to head our Humane Education Program.
Robin has a lifetime of experience with animals. Growing up in a rural community outside of Santa Barbara she is no stranger to animals of all kinds. Previously, Robin was the Education Director for the Santa Barbara Humane Society, followed by nearly two decades of experience as a science teacher reaching students from preschool through high school. Robin has developed materials for the California Department of Agriculture, Channel Islands National Park, and California Foundation for Agriculture.
With a love of animals and a desire to help, Robin pursued the position because she felt she could make a difference in animals’ lives. When asked what excites her most about her new role Robin replied, “I am excited about creating fun, educational, and engaging lessons and programs that will be enjoyed by young and old alike with a common theme of being an advocate of the health and wellbeing of animals”.
Humane Education is a free service offered by the HSVC that teaches compassion, empathy, respect and kindness for all living things. Our outreach encompasses all of Ventura County, visiting preschools, day cares, schools, adult and senior programs, service groups, community organizations and events, churches, and anyone who will have us! We address the needs of animals, as well as people and communities, with topics on health and safety, disaster preparedness, overpopulation, animal rights, neglect, abuse and cruelty, the function and services of shelters, and pet care and responsibility.
