Canmore Collegiate High School and Bow Valley SPCA collaborated on a Grade 9 Work Study Pilot Program on Jan 22- 26. Two Grade 9 students spent the week at Bow Valley SPCA with Resident Animals, Staff, and volunteers.
The students presented themselves with eagerness to learn, compassion for the animals and were attentive to learning the operations of running an animal shelter. Spending time with puppies and kittens and learning Open Paws training program were the highlights. Bow River Veterinary Clinic invited the students to spend an afternoon in an animal hospital learning animal care.
The Work Pilot Project was a positive experience for all concerned especially the Resident Animals who received extra love and attention.
