The mission of Rockets Rangers is to teach children compassion for and solutions to the plight of homeless animals, as well as to give them the tools and knowledge to be better caregivers of their own companion animals. We accomplish this by taking Rocket to groups of children between the ages of 7 and 10 and telling them the story of his abandonment and rescue which is illustrated by his personal cartoon. It is a sad story with a happy ending that touches their hearts and inspires them to help needy animals. During visits the kids are each given a Rocket’s Rangers booklet that contains the cartoon, a coloring section, emergency info and drawings by other children. It also contains ideas of how they can help and become “Super Rangers”, which qualifies them to win a chance to win a bike in a drawing 2 times per year !
Program founder and director is Barbara Steele who will be happy to arrange a visit by Rocket to your classroom or kid’s group meeting. There are also many volunteer opportunities.
