OPH is working with the Alexandria Library system to raise awareness about how amazing shelter dogs (and dogs in general) are for families - especially children. The Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum is a new, innovative program that builds on children’s affinity for animals and highlights the unique characteristics and desirability of Mutt-i-grees®, or shelter pets. The goal of the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum is to enable children to grow up to be calm, confident, and caring. We are excited to be back this year with a new book to read to the children - Lucy Rescued by Harriet Ziefet. There will also be a craft following the book reading. Hope to see you there!

For nearly five years Operation Paws for Homes Rescue has partnered with high-kill rural shelters mainly in South and North Carolina, to rescue adoptable dogs from an otherwise deadly fate. In less than a decade, OPH has been instrumental in the rescue community, finding permanent homes for over 1,000 homeless dogs on a yearly basis. What began in a volunteer’s backyard as OPH’s first adoption “event” has resulted in several weekly events hosted across four states! OPH recognizes that none of our rescue efforts and accomplishments would be possible without you- our volunteers, fosters, donors, supporters and community. We remain humble in our successes and identify that we have a long way to go in our rescue work, which is why on June 4, 2015, we invite YOU to join OPH and Do More 24. One Day. One Community. Our OPH.

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!
