GSROC was selected to provide a unique and informative Humane Education component for the Discovery Science Center in Santa Ana. Hundreds of children, ages 4 years to teenagers, attended presentations to learn about responsible pet care and about the importance of compassion. Each day, a different GSROC volunteer was the featured guest speaker and the children listened intently. Our dogs were a huge success, with ambassador Rogue shaking paws with everyone that she met, and ambassador Draco helping children to overcome their fears of large dogs. Onlookers commented on how well mannered our dogs were and how capable our volunteer handlers were. The dogs had the most fun of all and seemed to be as amused by the kids as the kids were intrigued by the dogs.
We extend our sincere gratitude to the Discovery Science Center and their staff for allowing us to be a part of this important community event!
