Puppy Mill Awareness
Posted by: Colleen on Sep 27, 2012
What issue did your Take Action project address?
Our Take Action project addressed the issue of animal cruelty that occurs in puppy mills.
What was your Take Action Project? Who did you involve in your project?
For our Take Action project, we created lesson plans for both second and sixth graders, showing them the issue of puppy mills and the importance of not supporting them. It also included information on the responsibilities of owning a dog, and pet care. I worked on this project with Rebecca Lawrence and in partnership with ROAR in Ridgefield.
What were the results? How did it affect the community?
We have successfully educated girls about the issue of puppy mills, and also, we passed our lesson plans to ROAR animal shelter for them to use in their education program.
What did you learn from the experience?
The experience taught me a lot about organization and time management, as well as interaction with others and teaching/leading them.
