We are seeking confident individuals who clearly possess a drive of self motivation and are passionate about companion animals who are mistreated, neglected and too often killed. We have the information, we know what the main causes of the unnecessary deaths and abuse and neglect. However, not a single organization is out in the field with paid or volunteer staff to begin the process of guiding our next generation towards making more informed decisions. We plan to change that with the hiring and training of various caring individuals who aren't afraid of speaking to large groups of students and giving them information that will greatly reduce these deaths, abuse and neglect cases for the future.
Americans donated nearly $2 billion in 2010 to their favorite animal protection organizations in hopes of doing exactly what I hope we can do by approaching it from a very different position. With this $2billion, the rescue groups, both large and small were able to save approximately 90,000 dogs from local and area high kill facilities. Still, 8 million died at the hands of our county, city and state governments. It is obvious that their way is not working and that a different plan of attack is considerably overdue.
Each individual representing this organization will offer guidance to students on how they can form their own Humane Education Club for their school. This would include providing ideas for the first 3-4 meetings' speakers and topics of discussion.
I've posted this across the nation and gotten several interested parties to follow through.
Positions are open in all areas of the United States of America effective January 1, 2013. 21st Century CARES will provide each candidate with all resources needed to provide an educated and informative presentation. It is important to become familiar with these resources and then to place them into your own words so that you are more comfortable when standing in front of audiences of 5th graders through college including 4H groups, scouting troops and even Sunday School classes. Each individual will be responsible for his/her hours, locations of engagements and appointments as well as income. Each presentation will be a minimum of 45 min in length. If Q and A follows, it will be longer. It will also extend the presentation if you are addressing larger groups i.e. all 4 classes of that particular grade lever in the building or even 5th, 6th and 7th grades in an assembly.
If you have a CALM AND SAFE dog who is extremely well socialized to be around groups of people especially youth, it is suggested that you make an appt with a local entity that can provide you with the professional opinion that your dog is safe in these situations. TRUST ME YOU DO NOT WANT TO BE WRONG ON THIS. YOU MAY PAY FOR THE REMAINDER OF YOUR LIFE OR EVEN WITH THE LIFE OF YOUR PET SHOULD IT BITE OR ATTACK WHILE IN YOUR CARE.
For a motivated individual who also has access to a more populated area, it is conceivable to bring in upwards of $500per week. Even for those who don't have the time or are more 'rural' in population, it is still easy to assume you could make $200 per week. Your 'out of pocket' expenses would be some printing, minimal numbers of blank cds and your gas.
My name is Randy N. Warner and it is my goal to have as many folks employed in this manner as we can find and train. I truly hope that you will never hesitate calling me with questions, as I really want you to do well, be successful and to make some money. 21ST CENTURY CARES DOES NOT TAKE ANY PORTION OF THE INCOME YOU GENERATE nor do we ask for fees, training costs or any other monies generated due to your work efforts for this company.
The young people are eager to learn. They truly do want to have a cause they can get behind and make some changes. This is the one we hope they'll adopt. After all, almost everyone will have a pet at some point in time, so they can directly relate.
Set aside a good time and call Randy at 928-767-4895. Have a list of questions ready to ask and be prepared to spend an hour or more on the phone to gain a good solid picture of what this position entails, your responsibility, etc.
PREPARATION FOR THE FIELD (after becoming very familiar with the links of information provided below)
1. If you want to become a non profit, call IRS for an EIN number and name your non profit '(fill in this space) Cares'. 800-829-4933
You're looking for an Employee Identification Number (EIN#)
Mine is 21st Century Animal Resource and Education Services and we go by 21st Century CARES. All you need is your EIN and it's free and takes about 20 min. You'll never have to worry about collecting grants or large donations so you won't have to go and develop a board of directors, come up with articles of incorporation, mission statement and bylaws. DON'T EVER LOSE THIS NUMBER!!!
2.Call any school for 5th grade and up. If you have a friend or relative with contacts, go through them. If not, call and simply tell them you were in the parking lot and met that teacher who is such an animal lover. EVERY SCHOOL HAS ONE OF THESE. They'll put you through to someone who can get you in. NO CHARGE to them.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO SPEAK TO LARGER GROUPS I.E. THE ENTIRE 5TH AND 6TH GRADE CLASSES IN THAT BUILDING AT ONCE. This will prevent you from having to return over and over again. Speaking to only one of the 5th grade classes from that building is also sort of a waste of your time. Assemblies are difficult to convince schools to do, but can really offer a great venue and atmosphere for some good information sharing. Simply combining the 5th and 6th graders is not as overwhelming and much easier to handle for you as well as the school administrators and teachers.
If you live in or near a more populated area, start with your Charter schools. They are there to try new things and are not bound by all the red tape that our normal public schools are. Then use them as references.
You'll address the issues that will help them make better and more compassionate decisions in life, help them form their own humane education club, provide them with articles, lesson plans, project suggestions etc - all from the website.
Most importantly, let them know you will be donating a full set of seven books on humane education and character development to their school library. They really appreciate that. (you'll be doing this with e-books on cd's through free links I will be providing to you)
3. Then go to a business and ask them to sponsor you for $150 or two of them for $75 each. Explain what you do and that you'll be donating 7 books to that school library and the cd cover will say THESE HUMANE EDUCATION BOOKS AND MATERIALS DONATED BY XYZ BUSINESS and will be there forever for kids to see. The school will also love that idea.
(You can get these books downloaded at no charge from the home page of www.21stcenturycares.org/) Then simply copy them onto your blank CD, print off a cover for the CD case that thanks the business and you're ready to roll.
The books 'teachers guides' and are simply the contents of the entire website which includes over 1,000 total pages of lesson plans, project suggestions, stories, research articles and more.
Every day you work, you'll pocket what ever funds you collected for sponsorship. Sometimes you'll only be able to get $100. Big deal. It's 100 bucks you didn't have the day before.
You certainly don't want to keep getting sponsors for the same school. That school doesn't need 3 or 4 cd's with the same information. We only consider any given school to be a 'success' when our representative has given a full presentation to every student in that building from 5th grade on up. So use your visits wisely so as not to take away from your earnings.
You may also wish to reduce the cost of a sponsorship for the more rural communities and then you would offer fewer books per visit as your lasting contribution to this message for their students.
Local printers may very well give you some copies for no charge as long as they have their logo someplace prominently displayed. None of the pages for pass out sheets need to be given to every student at your expense. Be wise with your choices and give the teacher the ultimate decision.
READING MATERIALS YOU NEED TO REVIEW VERY CLOSELY
Please read the following text very carefully and be aware that this is the general outline of topics for the presentations you will be giving. So, the following should be pretty well memorized prior to your first appearance.
Make this FUN for the kids and teachers as well. Energetic, but compassionate and most of all informative.
(You can use any number of personal greetings to begin that involve the audience - this is the one that worked for me)
We adults are killing up to 8 million happy, healthy adoptable pets this year in the U. S. We are not doing this due to any comprehensive and viable humane education program in our schools when we were young. Clearly, we are doing this due to a lack thereof. In other words, had they had any education when I was growing up, we wouldn't be killing so many today. Hopefully you will take the info I present today and use it to make better decisions that will reduce the number of animals that suffer abuse, neglect and even death.
MOST people really do not know what is right and what is wrong when it comes to bringing pets inside the home at night, having litters of puppies and kittens, and giving them the guidance and stuff they really need as opposed to what it is we only want to give them. Quite honestly, most adults commit these deadly acts out of ignorance and laziness.
Dogs and cats can help lower your blood pressure, sniff you for epileptic seizures before they happen, guide the blind, alert their humans who are hearing impaired that someone is at the door or the phone is ringing. Yet we dump them at the pound in the most callous of ways when they become a burden and then, they die.
* Importance of spaying and neutering before the age of 6 months. No leg lifting, less likely to run away, to bite, fight and contract testicular or vaginal cancer. Plus they won't have unwanted litters.
* The importance of proper ID on all pets i.e. July 4, Halloween, natural disaster, etc.
* The links between animal abuse at a young age and future criminal behavior and committing much greater crimes.
*Spend time discussing the benefits of community service involvement. ''DO NOT STAND IDLY BY AND ALLOW YOUR FAMILY, FRIENDS OR NEIGHBORS TO ABUSE, NEGLECT OR HAVE LITTERS OF PUPPIES AND KITTENS. Then discuss with them what they feel is abuse and neglect and make sure you fill in the blanks from what they have failed to mention. Tying up on a short chain, not having proper vet care for ailments and injuries, striking the young pet in an attempt to train them.
* The absolute EVIL and irresponsibility of having even one litter of puppies or kittens. Put it into a business prospective. If your company made widgets and every year for the past 50 yrs you've had an end of year surplus of 8 million or more, a business who plans to be successful and stay in business will stop making widgets next year, Then they will review a viable plan to prevent this overage from ever happening again.
*The 'do's and don't' of having to part with a pet. First of all, you NEVER get a pet unless you are the owner of the property at which you reside. Landlords are notorious for deciding that they no longer want pets in the home you rent. Boyfriends will decide they don't like your little cat and try to force you to get rid of it. Be settled and stable before getting one.
If you must part with your pet, do NOT take it to the dog pound. They will kill it the same day. Do NOT put an ad on Craigslist for free dog or free cat. Find a rescue org that will take it until it finds another forever and loving home.
The benefits of having your dog sleep inside the home at night. ( read up on this. There is NO reason to leave a dog outside at night and EVERY reason to bring it inside. Ignorance is the only difference from one home to the other.
Benefits of starting with an adult dog from the pound and then getting a puppy at a later date since the BEST homes will have two dogs.
YOUR DOG WILL BE THE BEST FRIEND YOU'LL EVER HAVE IN YOUR LIFE. DON'T GIVE UP ON THEM BECAUSE THEY WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON YOU.

Some of the ones I've authored:
PROJECT SUGGESTIONS FOR THE STUDENTS FUTURE ACTIVITIES
Here are some ideas that interested kids can do in their community to get them involved, help out others and see just how pervasive these problems are all over the country.
There are so many ideas for starting a humane education club after school. but here are some good ways to start.
Suggested projects for kids.
Organize and support a humane education club in your school - much like Future Teachers Club or FFA, etc.
Offer to assist senior citizens and low income families with necessary medications, vet visits, delivery of food, training tips, etc to make the pets happier and healthier with those given family dynamics.
Plan for an all school assembly where you and others in the humane ed club can speak to the entire student body. maybe not all at once, but over time.
Help the community in securing appropriate licensing and ID for all pets in the area.
Have a drive to get local pets micro chipped.
Have a spay neuter clinic come to your town for discount surgeries.
Help local dog pound with adoptions by holding an adopt a thon at your school on Sat for the locals.
Make sure ALL these events are covered by the local newspapers and even TV and radio stations. Remember, what you are doing is CHANGING THE WORLD.
Speak to your town council and discuss the possibilities of opening a dog park for exercise, socialization and to bring the community together.
Consider electing a Lead committee that will visit surrounding schools and youth groups etc to help them also form their own local humane education clubs so you can all share info and grow together. We can make this effort grow to a national level if only everyone puts in a little effort in a coordinated manner.
Make sure you get the students to understand the following!!!
YOU MUST BE ABLE TO PROUDLY SPEAK OUT WHEN SOMEONE IS NOT GIVING THEIR PET THE PROPER CARE AND NECESSARY MEDICAL TREATMENT. YOU CANNOT ALLOW FAMILY, FRIENDS OR RELATIVES TO ABUSE NOR NEGLECT THEIR PETS. IF YOU CAN'T SAY IT TO THEM DIRECTLY THEN CALL AUTHORITIES AND LET THEM DETERMINE THEIR FATE. IF YOU SEE A DOGGY TIED TO A STAKE WITH A 6 FT CHAIN, JUST THINK HOW HORRIBLE THAT WOULD BE IF YOU WERE HIM. THINK HOW IGNORANT THE HUMAN IS THAT IS DOING THAT TO THE POOR DOG. IF YOU ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE BY NOT SPEAKING OUT, YOU ARE JUST AS MUCH TO BLAME FOR THE POOR DOG'S SITUATION AND JUST AS ABUSIVE AS THE PERSON WHO DID THAT.
YOU ARE THE VOICE FOR THE VOICELESS!!!
