November Branch Meeting
Elizabeth Rivard, Executive Director, Prison Pet Partnership
Saturday, November 17 10:00 A.M., Lakewood Library
The Prison Pet Partnership is a non-profit organization located on the grounds of the Washington Corrections Center for Women in Gig harbor. They rescue and train homeless animals to provide service dogs for persons with disabilities, and operate a boarding and grooming facility to provide vocational education for women inmates. The program benefits all involved – the animals who are given the chance to lead lives of service, the inmates who learn valuable skills so they may find gainful employment upon release, and the individuals with disabilities who receive well-trained dogs to help increase their level of independence.
Beth has a B.S. in Business Administration and is finishing her Masters in Public Administration at The Evergreen State College. She lives in Gig Harbor with her 2 dogs and a cat and has two grown daughters. When not working and going to school, she enjoys movies, camping and travel.
Beth and a canine companion will demonstrate training, discuss this valuable program and take your questions. Join us for a great morning!
Future meetings include Saturday, December 15th – Annual Holiday Luncheon and program, Adriatic Grill in Tacoma
Saturday, January19th – Kathleen Britton of Multicare, Forensic Nursing, at Multicare
