We are working with area high schools for this program that is open to 11th and 12th grade students interested in careers in animal behavior, training, and vet tech. Students will help in all areas of the rescue, including play times, dog walking and training, food prep, and our Project Home Life program. The program includes working at Golden Gateway, and the program is managed by Paige Johnson, working in conjunction with other DVGRR staff.
Special thanks to the Rij family who is sponsoring this program in memory of their Golden, Phinney. And thanks to M&T Bank for the grant to initially launch this program.
We are thrilled to offer this program as part of our collaborative efforts, reaching out in our community and throughout our geographic footprint as well as providing additional care and enrichment for the dogs in our program.
