1.) at the beginning when they are at the lake and he's telling him to remember this place
if something bad was to happen at their new job.
2.) At the end when George tells him that he is not angry and asks Lennie to tell him about they're dream in order to distract him before he shoots him. Obviously he shoots him out of kindness snd also he wants him to be in his 'happy place' before he dies rather than in a state of worry or panic like he should be.
Like right at the end when George shoots Lennie. Although it sounds brutal, this shows his care towards him as he make Lennie think of his favourite things (tending soft things), instead of killing him in vain, making him feel worthless etc.

You can do when George relieves Lennie of suffering by shooting him at the end, the beginning when they're by the lake, when they arrive at the ranch and George speaks for Lennie because he knows he isn't capable of much social interaction and won't say the right things, when he tells Lennie to hide in the bushes if ever anything bad happens etc :)
