Testimonials

“I learned how to know how animals are feeling by looking at their bodies. I enjoyed meeting new puppies and making new friends.”

“I learned about when animals need you and when they don’t. I enjoyed making new friends and making animal friends. I liked Ferah the cat because something about him made me feel like we have the same things we both like.”

“I learned to ask before you pet and snuggle dogs and give them treats. What I enjoyed most was meeting new animal friends.” -Ari
