Judith A Bassett Canid Education and Conservation Center
Official Coin Up Partner
The JABCECC is a non-profit dedicated specifically to canids. The canid family consists of two groups, wolf/dog like animals (Canines) and fox like animals (Vulpines). We presently have Ambassador Russian domesticated foxes, Ambassador wolves, SC New Guinea Singing Dogs, and German Shepherds. Our center will be unique in several ways.
· The only center in the WORLD that will have both the very rare New Guinea Singing Dogs 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 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.
