Rin and It’s a Dog’s Day at Club J

Club J at Sandhill School in Menlo Park, across from the Stanford Shopping Center, is one of two sites for the Oshman Family Jewish Community Center’s afterschool program and was the venue for an educational session about dogs offered by PAHS on Friday, April 28.

The highlights of the session were a viewing of PAHS’ Telly Award-winning educational film It’s a Dog’s Day and the opportunity to meet and learn about Rin, a very special service dog rescued as a puppy in Mongolia. Chris Corvetti, Rin’s person and one of PAHS’ education volunteers, showed photos of Rin as she told the story of this dog’s rescue. She also explained to the students that dogs in Mongolia are usually not pets and nearly always have a very difficult life on the streets.

Rin showed how happy she was to be in the company of friendly and interested students throughout the session by visiting everyone in the classroom and eliciting pets and hugs.

PAHS thanks Michael Bright and Jacqueline Adams at Club J Sandhill for the opportunity to visit the site and the Club J students who most generously provided dog and cat beds and toys for the animals we help.
