Lucas to present humane education program to sixth grade students in honor of "Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month."

In honor of ASPCA Prevention of Animal Cruelty Month, which begins on April 1, Special Investigator Annemarie Lucas will be presenting a humane education program to sixth grade students at Brown Middle School in Atlanta. Ms. Lucas is a special investigator for The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) Humane Law Enforcement department and star of Animal Planet's award-winning reality television series Animal Precinct.

"At the ASPCA, we uphold a fundamental belief that kindness and empathy are key elements to a complete education," says Special Investigator Lucas. "And it is extremely inspiring to me personally whenever I have an opportunity to directly impact and influence young people." Special Investigator Lucas will be accompanied by Eddie, a dog that was rescued as a puppy from a location in Atlanta where he had been chained with a thick padlock around his neck for six months. Eddie is currently available for adoption.

Each week, Lucas' work is seen by millions on Animal Precinct, Animal Planet's award-winning series airing on Mondays at 10:00 PM (ET). Back for a third season, Animal Precinct chronicles the work of the only law enforcement group in New York solely dedicated to investigating crimes against the city's animal population. Currently, there are 16 humane law enforcement agents and investigators covering New York City's five boroughs. Their cases include the infiltration and destruction of dog fighting rings, the closing down of cockfighting facilities and the arrests of perpetrators who neglect and abuse their animals.
