Fourteen-year-old Brooke enjoys teaching Moose the Rottweiler how to obey. She feels accomplished helping Moose learn how to be a service dog for an Iraq War veteran. And in the process of teaching Moose, Brooke learns some things, too.
Brooke and Moose are participating in Teenage 180, a Tennessee-based Christian outreach program sponsored by the husband-and-wife team of Ronnie and Lisa Pollard:
“’It helps the animals, and it helps the teenagers as they work with them because they can relate to not having anyone who cares,’ said Ronnie, who added that some of the youths have been featured on Animal Planet’s ‘Last Chance Highway’ cable-TV series on rescued and adopted pets.” [Source: The Commercial Appeal]
Teenage 180 has several corporate sponsors, and is in the process of receiving is 501(c)(3) non-profit status.
