Simba and Turtle - two members of the Mutt-i-grees Canine Corps - joined our staff for a visit to Roosevelt High School in Roosevelt, NY this month to work with a class from Abilities, Inc.
Unqua Elementary School in Massapequa, NY began implementing the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum this fall and the students are loving it! To enhance what they are learning in the classroom, students visited North Shore Animal League America this week for a behind-the-scenes tour of the world’s largest no-kill rescue organization. Both the students and the puppies and kittens they visited with truly enjoyed the experience.
Inspired by the charitable work of one of her classmates, a New York City middle school student, named Sam, has raised $100 for North Shore Animal League America’s Help Me Heal Program. Sam is a member of her school’s YAP (or Youth Animal Protectors) Club and studies the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum. These two programs work in conjunction at her school to teach students about animals in need and encourage relevant service learning projects.
A Mutt-i-grees® student in New York City, named Kaia, is putting the curriculum to good use; inspiring selfless acts from those around her and, in doing so, raising money for animals in need.

An 11-year-old Mutt-i-grees® student in New York City, named Jack Hillyer, is putting the curriculum to good use; fusing what he’s learned about rescue animals in school with his talent for animation to illustrate the beauty of adopting a pet from a shelter.
