Caroline Chouvinard, a junior at Armijo High School, is a dog lover who wants to do something for animals but she is too young to work at a rescue center. So she came up with a solution that is part school project, part community project and an animal helper.
Since December, she has been hatching a project for her International Baccalaureate certificate, which has several requirements. One of those is community activity service.
“Students feel that they can’t make a difference in animal rescue because you have to be 18 years old to do it,” Chouvinard said. “So I organized a Walk for Pets.”
