Mutt-i-grees Student Ambassador Layne Meek has gotten off to a great start to the 2014-15 academic year. On Saturday, September 13, 2014, Layne participated in an adoption event at a PetSmart in his community, in which more than 30 cats and dogs were placed into loving homes. He’s also been approved by the Ashland Animal Rescue Fund (AARF), a private no-kill shelter in Ashland, KY, to start a Mutt-i-grees Teen Council to help homeless animals in his community.
Families in Centereach, NY know where to go to find fun, hands-on activities that help shelter animals: their local library! Since March 2013, Middle Country Public Library (MCPL) has been offering a variety of Mutt-i-grees programs to patrons as part of its seasonal programming.
For the third year in a row, Project C.A.R.E. and North Shore Animal League America collaborated on the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum Summer Youth Program for at-risk teens from MercyFirst’s Residential Treatment Center in Syosset, NY.
This summer, students from St. Martin de Porres Marianist School in Uniondale, NY participated in a week-long internship at North Shore Animal League America as part of the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum.
