How do we know that what we teach our children has been learned?
We have recently learned that three former Project POOCH youths are applying what they learned about dogs while incarcerated to help save dogs at a local animal shelter. The youth are no longer incarcerated; go to the local shelter and work with some of the hard-to-adopt dogs by using humane methods of training so the dogs have a better chance of being adopted. They first socialize and bond with the dogs before starting positive reinforcement training. Once the dogs are trained to be Canine Good Citizens, they will be adopted into permanent homes.
The youth work with these dogs to become better pets, while they continue to work on their social skills and to become productive citizens of their communities!
This evidence is the proof that the youths learned what they were taught in Project POOCH!!
Eighty-eight cents of every dollar donated goes to our program and making it possible to continue to provide valuable skills to the youth and provide adoptable dogs to the community that we serve.
