Mill Creek Beta Club &
Mountain View Homeless Pets Club
Wednesday, December 4, was a busy day for the Education Team of Our Pal's Place!
The morning started at 7:30am with the Beta Club at Mill Creek Middle School. O.P.P. resident, Kit, accompanied Kendra and Adrienne to teach the students how to safely approach a new dog and understand what dogs are "saying" to us through their body language. Then the students presented OPP with a huge rolling bin FULL of dog treats, kitty litter, paper towels, laundry detergent, hand soap, harnesses, and WalMart and Petco gift cards. They still have a check on the way to us as well! Thank you, Mill Creek Beta Club!
Later in the afternoon, Paige and Kendra visited the Moutain View Elementary Homeless Pets Club. The kids soaked up the presentation that demonstrated where pet store puppies come from ... puppy mills. The students were genuinely surprised and saddened by what they learned. In keeping with the positive values of OPP, we left the kids with a feeling of empowerment that they can be part of the change by spreading the word to adopt, not shop! Thanks to OPP volunteer, Cathi Cahn for inviting us!
