Friends for Pets Foundation: Build-A-Bear Youth Humane Education Grant
Recognition by the Petfinder Foundation with the awarding of this grant brought FFP recognition and involvement from various Boy and Girl Scout groups, community-service school leaders, and parents who wished to involve their children to be in a worthwhile enterprise.
The grant was used to expand our student involvement program. Each Sunday, under the direction of Will Moffitt, our Volunteer Coordinator, volunteers of all ages gather to walk, bathe, exercise, and love the FFP dogs. Students, many working on community-service hours, often are in the group. Many enjoy the involvement so greatly that they continue volunteering after their service hours are completed. Included are photos of student volunteers with the dogs who benefited from their attention.
