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.

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.
