Selma High School Partners with Local Shelter
In January 2014, Selma High School (Selma, CA) will begin collaborating with Second Chance Animal Shelter as part of the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum. “It teaches kids how to be confident, be compassionate and just kind of all-around life skills while incorporating humane skills,” said Sarah Trujillo Chambless, president of Second Chance.
Selma High Principal Mark Babiarz says his school's participation in the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum will make his community a better place:
“To have students who are educated and trained to assist and facilitate the workings of the Second Chance Animal Shelter means that we will have future adults who have the empathy and knowledge to deal with animals who are less fortunate than our own pets,” Babiarz said. “Building a community’s capacity with students and adults who understand and care for animals can only make that community a better place to live and work for everyone.”
