This afternoon, Brandon and Melissa Kintzler, Tom Gorzelanny (and his son Gavin), Ed Sedar, the Klement’s Famous Racing Sausages, and Hank the Ballpark Pup participated in the Wisconsin Humane Society PAL Graduation.
PAL stands for People and Animals Learning and is a two-week summer camp for Milwaukee children, ages 10-13. The kids are paired up to train a shelter dogs over the course of the camp and take part in other confidence-building and violence prevention activities. Since the program began in 1993, there have been over 750 graduates from the program. (For more information, click here.)
At today’s graduation, the kids demonstrated their new dog-handling skills and received their diplomas.
