A Connecticut children’s museum has discovered that, thanks to the Mutt-i-grees® Curriculum, a visit to the museum can teach kids a lot about shelter pets, while encouraging them to become activists and advocates for rescue.
In 2013, the EPIC Coalition, a nonprofit in Port Girardeau, Mo., wanted to develop a program using the power of the human-animal bond to help kids develop the skills to resist the pitfalls of drug and substance abuse.
