Oakland Pet Adoption Center joins with Teacher's Pet , a 501(c)3 non-profit organization to pair hard-to-adopt dogs with at-risk youth for a 10-week training session. The student trainers work with the dogs on basic obedience commands in order to make them more adoptable into permanent, loving homes while the trainers themselves mature in a kind and compassionate manner. After the 10 weeks are up, the dogs are then available for adoption.
The program works with youth from Kingsley Montgomery School in Waterford, Children's Village in Waterford, Crossroads for Youth in Oxford and Mount Clemens Juvenile Justice Center.
