This year our spring critter care efforts included school visits, a humane education workshop and community presentation by Nicole Forsyth from RedRover in Sacramento, California. We also held a Community Animal Care Event with Dr. Kim Hunter and the team from Vet to Pet Mobile Veterinary Services.
Nicole and LAFS teacher Valerie Ingram visited hundreds of local students and Nicole trained sixteen volunteers how to teach children about animal care, compassion and empathy.
