Kind News magazine for children will enter a new chapter this summer, as its publication changes hands from the Humane Society of the United States to RedRover, another national animal welfare organization. The June/July 2017 issue will mark the last time the HSUS publishes the magazine, which has been a flagship of the humane education world since 1983. Kind News teaches kids—and often, their parents and teachers—more about the animals who share our world and how best to care for them.
The HSUS and RedRover reached an agreement to transfer ownership and management of Kind News earlier this year. Founded in 1987, the mission of RedRover is to bring animals out of crisis and strengthen the bond between people and animals through emergency sheltering, disaster relief services, financial assistance and education.
“We are delighted that this valuable humane education magazine will continue to thrive under RedRover’s leadership. It plays a vital role in reaching younger people and nurturing their humane instincts toward animals and the environment,” said Bernard Unti, senior policy advisor and special assistant to the president of the HSUS.
“We are thrilled to acquire Kind News magazine and will use it as a tool for helping kids understand animals better and develop stronger, more empathetic relationships under our RedRover Readers program,” says Nicole Forsyth, president and CEO of RedRover. “RedRover Readers helps kids, educators and parents think deeply about the roles animals play in our lives, how we can learn from them and why empathy for others matters.”
