To provide and drive, with the support of the Moore County Commissioners, solutions to the pet overpopulation crisis in Moore County.
To share the Pet Responsibility Curriculum with over 1,000 4th grade students in Moore County each year.
Present our program as an integral part of the Moore County School's Character Education program which focuses on good judgment, integrity, kindness, perseverance, respect and responsibility and is linked to the N.C. Standard Course of Study and National Common Core Curriculum.
Mobilize a team-teach volunteer base, with a minimum of two teachers, assigned to the same school each year and present the curriculum to each class, annually, once a week, for a period of six weeks.
"The lessons were very appropriate for 4th graders. They were presented in a manner that held the attention and focus of the students. Students were involved and were learning."
Today, the PRC Curriculum is taught to 13 public and 9 private, fourth grade classes in Moore County.
PRC also advocates for animals through a number of outreach programs including The P-3 Project which supports pet adoption and placement initiatives; Speuter Runs that provide spay and neuter access to remote areas of Moore County; and Tail Waggin' Tutors which provides qualified handlers and Therapy Dogs for visitation in a variety of facilities and settings.
