Through partnership with The Kirkpatrick Foundation, our Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum team were invited to be part of the “Safe and Humane: Empathy and compassion through interaction with animals” panel discussion along with the Oklahoma City Zoo and Keystone Adventure School and Farm. Louisa McCune-Elmore, Executive Director and Paulette Black, Program Officer of The Kirkpatrick Foundation were there to lead the way.
Charleston Carnegie Public Library Partners with University of Illinois to Bring Mutt-i-grees® to Community
Throughout the summer, Charleston Carnegie Public Library in Charleston, IL has offered a series of Mutt-i-grees® programs that complement the library’s summer reading program “Paws to Read.”

On Thursday July 17th, Herr Memorial Library in Mifflinburg, Pennsylvania launched Mutt-i-grees® in the Library to 36 children and their caregivers during the Summer Discover Class for toddlers and preschoolers. This program is the first of many that will be planned throughout the year!
“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.
