The Animal Shelter Guide to the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum

The Animal Shelter Guide to the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum contains a broad range of lessons, projects, and activities to connect animal shelters and rescue groups with schools, libraries, and community-based organizations. The activities included encourage shelters play a leadership role in helping children develop empathy toward animals, which, in turn, will lead to increased adoptions and lower euthanasia rates.
