Remerton - Some South Georgia students learned an important lesson in pet safety Wednesday.

The Valdosta-Lowndes Humane Society taught students at Genesis Christian School how to deal with strange animals.

Hundreds of children are attacked by dogs each year, and they want to make sure these kids stay safe. "We as adults need to take the time to train children on how to be safe, how not to run because dogs like to chase, how not to scream because they think your enjoying it, and just how to be really safe with dogs," said Cheryl Hatcher.

The Humane Society started the pet safety program after a little girl in Valdosta was attacked and killed by a dog six years ago.
