Valdosta - Some South Georgia students are teaching other kids how to take care of animals.

Several Valdosta Middle School students have been taking part in the Humane Society's Junior Peer Educator program. They've spent the past six weeks learning about proper pet care, controlling the pet population, and preventing animal cruelty.

The students participated in poster and essay contests and gave presentations to their classmates on animal safety.

"I've learned how to treat animals and what to do or what not to do in case of an emergency situation," said Christie Bryant.

"I think its important so that other people can learn about how to be nice to animals and stop others from being cruel to them," said Joshua Davis.

The Junior Peer Educator program is put on by the Valdosta-Lowndes Humane Society and the Craig Center's after school program.
