Saint John Paul II

A special thanks to the fourth graders at St. John Paul II Catholic School. The final assembly was hosted by PRC teacher, Christie Hartlove and her therapy dog, Bonnie. Our guest speaker was Cindy Paris, owner of Miss Belle’s 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!

As a service project along with the Pet Responsibility Program, the students were able to collect bags of dry dog/cat food for the Pet Pantry.

Congratulations, Natalie, winner of our Speuter Story Contest. As a result of her efforts, a pet will be spayed or neutered.
