Win-Win Program: Homeless Teens Helping Homeless Pets

 |  Feb 26th 2011  |   6 Contributions

I leave you for the weekend with this video of a wonderful program, Hand2Paw, which brings together homeless teens and shelter animals for a win-win result: The teens receive humane education and professional skills, and a boost to their self-esteem, and the animals get the care and training they need in order to be more adoptable. Hand2Paw is in Philadelphia, and as far as program creator Rachel Cohen knows, there's no other program like it. H2P should be everywhere there are homeless teens and homeless dogs, don't you think?


Tip: Creating a profile and avatar takes just a minute and is a great way to participate in Dogster's community of people who are passionate about dogs.
