BSA has a Cub Scout pack meeting plan called Pet Pals related to the value of compassion. The Pet Pals meeting plan features ideas for the core value of compassion- games, group activities, songs, and more.
Here is how the BSA plan suggests tying together this theme with the value of compassion:
Compassion is having care and concern for the well-being of others. Others do not have to be people. This month we focus on having compassion for animals, especially our pets.
