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!
