The Colleton Animal Commitment Education (CACE) program kicked off its 2019-2020 program this month and celebrated the completion on November 15 at Colleton Preparatory Academy. This six-unit program teaches fourth graders about responsible pet ownership, the importance of spay/neuter, and heartworm prevention.
As part of the program, students have the option to compete in a “speuter” essay contest, sharing the information they learned about the benefits of spaying/neutering pets. Fourteen of the 28 students competed and FoCCAS volunteers served as judges. Ann Howell won a bag of goodies and a free spay/neuter (given to a shelter dog) for her speuter essay.
The CACE program will meet with fourth graders in the five public schools this spring. If you are interested in helping with this program, contact Janice Young at 843-908-2259.
