Jazmin givin a "Pleased to meet you" paw-shake
Fifth-grade Girl Scout Junior Troop 52445 from Randolph Heights Elementary in St. Paul hosted an event, “Animal Antics,” on Sunday, February 27 from 2-4 pm. The Junior Troop partnered with local pit bull and Rottweiler rescue, A Rotta Love Plus, whose facilitators educated event attendees about dog safety.
The event was aimed at area Brownie Girl Scouts (grades K-3). Event organizers expected approximately 200 Brownies to attend. The dog safety portion of the event consisted of twelve, 20-minute presentations that included basic tactics for how to stay safe around both familiar and stray dogs. This innovative, interactive program also touched on empathy, dog body language, animal rescue, and responsible ownership. The presentations were delivered by volunteers from A Rotta Love Plus who were accompanied by their therapy-registered pit bulls.
A big thank you to all the dogs and volunteers who made this a wonderful and successful event!
