The Shelter is looking forward to beginning their “Educate the Children on Pet Care” program in the 2015-2016 school year. The goal is to educate children on the proper care and treatment of animals. During visits to the school, Shelter employees will provide educational videos for students to view.

In regards to the “Educate the Public” program, a television, along with other viewing equipment, have been purchased and installed in the Shelter waiting room. Videos educating the public on pet care are played throughout the day.
