The fourth graders at Aberdeen Elementary celebrated their graduation from the Pet Responsibility Program with a visit and presentation from Southern Pines Police Officer Britt and K9 Elvis. Officer Britt talked about how he cares for and protects Elvis. Officer Britt wears a bullet-proof vest but Elvis does not. So, he is sure to keep Elvis behind his leg in certain situations. Elvis is highly trained and helps search for missing children and senior citizens as well as track down criminals. The PRC mascot, Speuter, read an inspirational poem about the difference we all can make and then awarded Zaviyon, Luis and Javion framed certificates and vouchers as winners of the Speuter Story Contest. Dogs Spot and Rexy will be neutered as a result of their efforts and advocacy!
