“Serving Our Community” is not only the theme of this year’s summer program, it is also at the heart of the Van Buren County MUTTS Club Summer Camp, which is why the students have spent time volunteering at local agencies, including the Fairfield Bay Animal Shelter in Arkansas. The students donated their time and talents to walk the dogs, clean the cat cages, and feed the cats at the shelter.
On Saturday, June 14th, our friends at West Babylon Public Library in West Babylon, NY held a Pet Adoption Fair! The event included Mutt-i-grees activities and nine animal rescue groups that brought Mutt-i-gree cats and dogs available for adoption.
On Saturday, June 14th, Team Mutt-i-grees presented a program at the Stepping Stones Museum for Children in Norwalk, CT. Families were invited to design their own cats and dogs using a variety of colored pencils and crayons. Once they were finished, the youngsters made their own Mutt-i-gree Puppets that they could take home.
