OPH is working with the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum​ to raise awareness about how amazing shelter dogs (and dogs in general) are for families - especially children. In 2008, a group called Pet Savers created the concept of the Mutt-i-gree® program — ( the name) which translates to a dog waiting for adoption at a shelter or rescue: the idea was to raise awareness of shelter animals; particularly, mixed-breed dogs, since they represent the majority of shelter dogs; and to help increase shelter adoption The goal of the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum is to teach social and emotional skills ---- critical skills that children will need with their interactions with people & animals in school, at home, and later on in the workplace. Along with highlighting the needs of Mutt-igree dogs waiting for adoption at shelters. Since most children, have a natural love & curiosity for dogs & animals ; teaching lessons w/dogs and about dogs makes since as children respond with enthusiasm to dog-themed activities and books-- the Mutt-i-grees aligns perfectly. We are excited to be a part of the town's summer program "Stories and Sprinklers." We will be reading a story and then handing out coloring sheets for the children to take home! Dog are welcome! Hope to see you there!
