Introducing SAFE Pet Rescue P.A.S.S.I.O.N Program: Paws And Students Study In Obedience Nurturing!
SAFE Pet Rescue is seeking student candidates to foster and train a shelter pet while fulfilling/receiving 100 qualifying community service hours for school, church, and scouting.
Each student fosters a shelter dog in his or her home for 6 weeks, taking the pet to 1-hour a week basic obedience training classes (paid for and arranged by SAFE) in their area to be held on Saturday or Sunday afternoons. Each student writes a report about their experience, makes recommendations for the type of home best suited for the dog, and creates instructions for utilizing the trained pet’s commands.
The program is open to Nocatee/Ponte Vedra or nearby areas, St Augustine and Putnam students.
