Spring 2013 Strengthening Opinions about Animal Responsibility Seminar Photo Collage
Merrielle and her students researched the major issues of animal abuse and neglect and responsible pet ownership.

The group traveled to Chicago, Indianapolis, Denver, local elementary and middle schools, and worked with both government and nonprofit animal shelters on their journey. The seminar produced a documentary film and a children’s educational video for its community partners, the Animal Rescue Fund (ARF) and the Muncie Animal Shelter.

The class also ´┐╝´┐╝designed an interactive exhibit - The Pet Experience - to compliment the films and to showcase the numerous educational print materials that it created for schools, local organizations and the community.
