We were thrilled to welcome the Abraham Lincoln High School, all the way from Brooklyn to our Long Island campus for their first of three visits. Thirty Pre Veterinary Animal Science Students came to learn about rescue and the work and compassion it takes to ready these animals for adoption into loving homes. The students were hands-on in various shelter departments, including: Shelter Operations, Behavioral, Grooming, Shelter Medical, Foster Care and Rescue.

Through experiential tasks, the children learned social emotional skills bridged with humane education. These necessary skills for success in school – in life, are based on the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum five themes: Achieving Awareness, Finding Feelings, Encouraging Empathy, Cultivating Cooperation, and Dealing with Decisions. The goal of this Mutt-i-grees Service Learning program is to offer nurturing and effective guidance while learning compassion, kindness and enhancing emotional intelligence.

Would you like your students to participate in their own internship? We are scheduling students now. Contact us for more information.
