POOCH Youth Graduates from College

Project POOCH
Project POOCH

Project POOCH (Positive Opportunities, Obvious Change with Hounds) is very proud of a former youth who went on to college after leaving our program and recently received his Bachelor of Arts degree in communications.

Andrew's first dog in the program was an abandoned chocolate lab, Rocky.  The dog was depressed, sickly, and heartbroken over losing his family.  Andrew liked Rocky immediately and spent time talking to the dog as he sat next to him in the kennel day after day until an adoptive family came along.

Although Andrew missed Rocky when he was adopted, it was affirmation to him that he could learn valuable skills working with dogs.

Rocky found his forever home and Andrew turned his life around to become a productive member of society.

Thank you all!
