The concept of M.U.T.T.S. began in 2011 at three school districts in Van Buren County, AR. High school students expressed that they would like to form a school-based club which could participate in Mutt-i-grees® service learning activities and organize fundraisers to raise awareness for shelter pets.
Now established in all three junior high schools and high schools in Van Buren County, M.U.T.T.S. Clubs are thriving. Members have sponsored adoptathons for local animal shelters, volunteered at local shelters and rescue centers, helped with mobile spay/neuter clinics, and participated in many service learning activities in their communities.
Inspired by these motivated, understanding, and thoughtful teenage students, other schools, libraries, and museums around the country have created their own M.U.T.T.S. Clubs to collaborate for the benefit of Mutt-i-grees®.
If your school has a M.U.T.T.S. Club, we want to hear from you! Share your story with us at [email protected].
The Shirley Alternative Learning Classroom M.U.T.T.S. Club recently helped at a Mobile Spay & Neuter Clinic in Fairfield Bay. The students assisted the vet before and after the surgeries.
Clinton Junior High (AR) has created a M.U.T.T.S. (Motivated Understanding Thoughtful Teenage Students) Club! They had their first Mutt-i-grees® luncheon in January to work on recruiting new members and discuss upcoming events. The M.U.T.T.S. Club volunteered at the Van Buren County Animal Shelter on Saturday, February 11, 2012. Students were given orientation and tour of the facility, as well as jobs to complete. They also enjoyed a picnic lunch in the adoption room and were given rewards for their time. We salute these dedicated students for their commitment to helping Mutt-i-grees®!
