Trip Name: Animal Rescue
Community Partner: Shy Wolf Sanctuary and (Possibly) Bird Garden of Naples
Description: Our trip will be centered around helping an organization whose focus is animal rescue. By participating in this trip, we hope to learn more about the workings of a shelter, the importance of adopting not breeding, and gain experience of taking care of different animals while helping an organization. We will also learn how the illegal pet trade can harm exotic animals, especially when people think they can care for an exotic pet that is not ready to live a domestic life.
