Through community engagement and discussions, Lawrentians will have an in-depth learning experience about Animal Welfare in the Fox Valley area and Animal Welfare issues at large. By the end of the program, individuals will understand issues of Animal Welfare, how to address said issues, and the importance of volunteering with animals.
