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.
