Healing animals and humans through conservation
The Judith A Bassett Canid Education and Conservation Center is a not for profit organization (501c3 charity) located in Santa Ysabel, CA.
It has been said that dogs are man's best friend. This is a sentiment that anyone who has ever shared their life with one of these lovable canids would certainly agree. My husband and I have spent all our lives around these remarkable animals. We are now opening a canid (canine) education and conservation center in the Santa Ysabel area to try to give back to these animals some of the love they have given us. The center is dedicated specifically to canids. The canid family consists of both wolf/dog like animals (Canines) and fox like animals (Vulpines). The center has Ambassador Russian domesticated foxes, Ambassador wolves/dogs, Primitive Dogs(New Guinea Singing Dogs, Carolina Dogs, etc), and partner with canine shelters, rescues, and animal assisted therapy organizations.
· It will be the only center that will have primitive dogs (like the NGSD) and the Russian domesticated foxes – two animals that are key to understanding how animals have become domesticated. This research is offering new insights into human social disorders.
· Evidence Based Animal Assisted Therapy Programs. We will utilize different types of canids to provide programs to individuals with conditions where healing with animals has been shown to improve a disease state or condition. Many of these animals will be rescued from shelters, through our collaborations with these organizations, which will give them an opportunity to help themselves by helping people.
· Interactive Educational Events with our Ambassador animals. We will have events at the center and off site. This will allow the public to have interactions with some very unique Canids and obtain a better understanding of them. Through understanding comes appreciation and through appreciation comes conservation.
We will strive to offer unique solutions to aid in the conservation and the promotion of the general welfare of all canids. By utilizing the latest research from academia combined with novel approaches found in the business world, we hope to change many of the paradigms that currently do not fully address many of the problems faced by canids.
We envision a world that acknowledges responsible and compassionate treatment of all animals.
Promoting Animal Conservation through Education, Animal Assisted Therapy Programs, and Compassionate Research built upon our Guiding Principles. We accomplish this through educational seminars, meet and greet events, conducting research to be published in peer reviewed journals, and collaborating with others that share our vision. We partner with other organizations, universities, individuals, foundations, and corporations that can improve the lives of canids and humans through the human-canid relationship.
