She will talk about what is involved in raising a puppy for possible service dog training. You can keep up with Peace's training, and training service dogs on her facebook page. Peace is adorable!

We will also decorate our supply drive boxes for the Kind Keeper Animal Rescue of Myrtle Beach. I will need volunteers to place these boxes around campus (Honor's center, English, Biology, Chemistry, and Fine Arts departments, Center for the Child, and the Library).

Spring 2022 Club Activities:

1st Club meeting, Feb 1, 2022, LSF 202. Click HERE for meeting minutes.

Our first club activity is trash pickup and tour at FMU Freshwater Ecology Center on Friday March 4th from 3-5pm. I can help caravan some students. (have room for about 5), and if someone else is willing to car pool that would be great. You can also just drive yourself out there! We plan on checking for herps (reptiles/amphibians) with Annalena (club VP) from 3-4, and then get a tour of the center from 4-5pm, then head back to campus. Center located at 3742 N. Williston Rd.

They have deer, opossums, foxes, a bobcat, reptiles, raccoons, skunks, and a bunch of other cool animals. Its located at 4067 Camden HWY, Bishopville. It's about a 50 min drive from FMU.

Last club activity of the semester, and is it a big and fun one! We will host Pause 4 Paws on Friday April 22nd from 12 3pm on the UC lawn. The Florence Area Humane Society is going to bring puppies on campus for students and faculty to cuddle with to distress before final exams. This is always a very popular event on campus. We could use as many club members there as possible to help chaperone the event (and cuddle PUPPIES). afasdfadfaf
