BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – A group of dogs from a local shelter enjoyed a day of rest and relaxation, thanks to the help of some area high school students.
Animal Charity Humane Society teamed up with Boardman High School for the Dogs Day Out event at Boardman Park.
Students from the high school’s Emerging Leaders program spent four hours just walking and having fun with the dogs.
There were also students at Animal Charity cleaning and reorganizing while the dogs were out.
“I just really appreciate Boardman High School working with us and helping us get this,” said Jason Cooke, president of Animal Charity Humane Society.
Boardman High School Principal Jared Cardillo said the project is a way for the students to work on their leadership skills and help out the community at the same time.
“This is just another way to showcase the kids we have, and we’re very proud of them. They’re stepping up and learning how to be leaders, learning how to give back to the community,” said Cardillo.
More than 20 dogs were treated to a day out at the park. Animal Charity holds the event twice a year.
