Spring Break is coming up soon (the week of the 15th for students in the Poudre School District, and the week of the 29th for students in the Thompson School District), and we’ve got a great, well, pack of special guests and activities planned. On each day of our “Dog-Gone Fun Spring Break” you’ll get to meet some of the special canines who help us humans in so many ways. In addition to meeting these great dogs and their people, there will also be a variety of hands-on activities, and a lot of tail wagging as well, no doubt! Each day will be different (you can check our calendar to keep track).
Here’s the program we’ve got lined up so far; we’re also working on getting a guide dog to come visit us too. We understand that the K9s are already engaging in a little bit of smack talk about Arson Dog … so it should be a fun week. Anyone got a pooper scooper?
Tuesday, March 16: Mike Manzo and Shadow the Arson Dog
Thursday, March 18: Rick Mainwal and the Fort Collins Police Department K9 Unit
Friday, March 19: Jill Reynolds and Skid the Search & Rescue Dog
