We are delighted to announce this year’s class of Mutt-i-grees National Student Ambassadors!
Selected from a group of students in some of the most effective Mutt-i-grees schools and clubs in the country, Mutt-i-grees National Student Ambassadors spend the academic year working on various animal welfare, humane education, and service learning projects of their choosing, with a goal to inspire other students and community members. While last year’s inaugural class of ambassadors set the bar high, we have no doubt that this year’s class will impress. Congratulations to these motivated young leaders – we can’t wait to see what you accomplish this year!

What's better than watching a movie outside with your dog? Not much, according to us! Families in Centereach, NY got a chance to do just that at Middle Country Public Library's Mutts & a Movie program this summer, which was a part of the library's ongoing Mutt-i-grees programming. As the national pilot site for Mutt-i-grees in the Library, MCPL has helped our initiative grow by introducing other libraries to Mutt-i-grees and partnering with local shelters and rescue groups in their community.
