The O’Neal School 2016-2017

A special thanks to the fourth graders at The O’Neal School. The final assembly was hosted by PRC teacher, Christie Hartlove, and her therapy dog, Bonnie, aided by PRC helper, Diana Barton, and PRC mascot, Speuter!  Our guest speaker was Cindy Paris, owner of Miss Belle‚Äôs Pet Spa. As well as being a groomer, Cindy is a PetTech PetSaver CPR, First Aid & Care instructor. She teaches the skills needed in a pet emergency, when taking the correct and proper actions can significantly increase the chances of survival and reduce the extent of injury to a pet. She talked with the students about her job as a dog groomer, giving lots of detail, answering great questions and working with Bonnie as her demo dog to show how to groom a dog. Bonnie, of course, loved all the TLC!  Harrison was awarded a framed certificate by Speuter as the winner of the Speuter Story Contest.  Because of Harrison’s advocacy, Hayden’s dog, Molly, will be spayed.  All of the students signed the “Promise” poster which stated their advocacy role on behalf of pets.
