A wonderful story from Lisa, one of our volunteers who works at the Sheriff's Department office in Keshena: 

On Tuesday, November 4th, I was asked to speak to a freshman class at Menominee Indian High School about KAHR, what we do within the community and how this class could help as a community project. It started slow, I talked about our door-to-door caravans, spay & neuter clinics and that we would love help from them if possible. Then the questions started flying ... I know you, you’ve been to my house, you’ve taken care of my dog before, you bring my grandma dog food, etc….

They asked how they could help? I mentioned the booster clinic Sunday the 9th if they wanted to come (we had one girl named Maria come, taught her to draw vaccines), build dog houses with the
help of the shop class & teacher, or dog treats for the dogs in the kennels. The teachers were very surprised how enthusiastic the kids were. They truly wanted to do something. SO…teacher Terry Brooks came today to the Sheriff’s Department to give me a box of homemade dog treats made by the kids. All natural, oatmeal & peanut butter, they smell wonderful. We will use for dogs in the kennel as a special treat. 

Thanks to Lisa for giving this talk and for all she does for the dogs on the reservation, and thanks to the freshman class for stepping up to help KAHR!
