The Cheyenne Animal Shelter sponsors 41 Cheyenne classrooms in receiving a Kind News subscription five times per year. Kind News is published by the Humane Society of the United States and encourages good character in children with an emphasis on kindness to animals, respect for natural habitats, good citizenship, and peaceful conflict resolution. It is a fun, cross-curricular teaching tool that gets kids into the reading and writing habit. Every issue includes fascinating facts about animals, tricky brainteasers, KIND Club Projects, and inspirational celebrity profiles. Kind News gives children a forum for expressing their opinions and contributing original short stories. It is published in three reading levels (grades K-2, 3-4 and 5-6.)
