The Mission of the Moore County Citizens' Pet Responsibility Committee (MCPRC) is to provide and drive, with the support of the Moore County Commissioners, solutions to the pet overpopulation crisis in Moore County.
MCPRC program is presented as an integral part of the Moore County
School's Character Education Program which focuses on good judgment,
integrity, kindness, perserverance, respect and responsibility and is
linked to the N.C.
Standard Course of Study and National Common Core
We 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 MCPRC pilot program launched in 2008 with the goal of sharing the Pet Responsibility curriculum
with over 1,000 fourth grade students in Moore County each year.
Today, the Pet Responsibility Education Program is an integral part of
the curriculum and taught to 13 public and 9 private fourth grade
