About the Kids

benefits the kidsHow it benefits the kids:

The PSC therapeutic sessions encourage and communicate to at-risk youth messages of:

  • Responsibility
  • Compassion
  • Empathy
  • Accountability
  • Commitment
  • Hope

These reinforced messages are practiced by working hands-on with the shelter dogs and then having the necessary counseling time to understand the dynamics of their experiences. If you would like to know more fully how this uniquely important process contributes to helping at-risk youth, please feel free to contact the PSC therapeutic team.

Participants who are interested can also explore a possible career path in the pet industry. Through on-line training and instruction from local professionals, they can earn accreditation or work toward certification in areas such as dog training, grooming, vet tech, or pet care.
