Young Friends Help Nearly 5,000 Animals Find Forever Homes

By: Neva A. Graham Published: Mar 10, 2017
Last July, the Young Friends of Penn Vet joined forces with Penn Vet’s Shelter Medicine Program and NBC10 to help nearly 5,000 animals get adopted from nearly three dozen area shelters. The Young Friends were on hand at the Providence Animal Center in Media, Pennsylvania, to help direct potential adopters to the correct species line; provide water to animals as well as people waiting to adopt; and distribute goodie bags from Ryan Hospital with bandanas and pet tips. The event was well attended, and the volunteers enjoyed helping owners welcome their new furry friends into their forever homes. The group plans to offer more volunteer opportunities, so be sure to check the Young Friends of Penn Vet page on our website at www.vet.upenn.edu/young-friends.
