Over the three-week course of the PAL Program, participants
trained the dogs to perform a number of obedience
cues including sit, down and heel. Through participation
in PAL, youth at-risk learn the importance of kindness
and compassion toward all living things.
The PAL Program is a nationally recognized violence
prevention program developed 13 years ago by the
Wisconsin Humane Society in response to the growing
number of violent acts being committed toward people
and animals in our community.
