KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (August 23, 2017) – Radio Systems Corporation™, an industry leader in the development of innovative pet behavioral, containment and lifestyle products through its PetSafe® Brand, Invisible Fence® Brand and SportDOG® Brand, has awarded $10,000 to the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley to support its new Humane Education for Youth (HEY!) program, which will provide children with an age-appropriate understanding of companion animals, shelters and animal welfare topics through fun, yet educational classes.
“Thanks to Radio Systems Corporation we can build our HEY! program over the next year and provide some unique opportunities to the kids in our community,” says Katie Crossen, Communications and Grant Coordinator for the Humane Society of Tennessee Valley. “We are very appreciative of their support and investment to children and animals.”
The Humane Society of Tennessee Valley plans to work with over 6,500 kids a year through school partnerships. Grant funds will be used to purchase program supplies, fund school field trips to the shelter and provide individual family pet spay/neuter grants to program kids with a portion of awarded funds.
“We are pleased to support the Humane Society of Tennessee Valley since their work aligns with our mission to improve animal welfare and support the education and development of youth in the area,” said Wendy Williams, Team Lead of the Philanthropy Committee for Radio Systems. “We strongly believe reaching youth at an early age through this program will lead to a better future for animals.”
