First 2015 Session Graduation
Under sunny skies and a slight wind, three ladies with two dogs graduated May 21, 2015, from the Project Second Chance Monroe program. Over 15 people attended the ceremony and cheered for the successes of the youth, including Laurie from Pets for Vets. She accepted "Emily" the terrier mix and was taking the little dog to a U.S. veteran with PTSD. She expressed to the youth how important what they did was to the veteran and how thankful he was to them. Sasha from the Lenawee Humane Society was on hand to see the great result for Emily who had been rescued from their animal shelter. The second dog, Lancelot, is being adopted by a local family. Dr. Jeff McIntyre also spoke about what the youth learned and Michelle, one of the trainer volunteers gave accolades to the girls for their hard work. Marji was the host for the event at the Monroe County Youth Center. Congratulations, ladies!
