You don’t have to be a professional teacher to teach Pet Responsibility classes. Pet Responsibility Volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Some are animal shelter volunteers, animal welfare advocates, kennel club members, or therapy dog trainers. Others are parents, veterans or retirees who want to help children and animals. What draws them all to the program is the idea that children can learn to be sensitive, responsible pet owners, and improve conditions for animals in their own communities.
The Pet Responsibility Program has recently become a Community Partner with UNCG’s Department of Leadership and Service-Learning and Guilford College’s Bonner Center for Community Service and Learning. Starting in the fall of 2013, UNCG and Guilford College students will have the option of volunteering to teach Pet Responsibility classes for academic service-learning credit.
