- Rescue Me: Animal Adoption and Advocacy MCC Credit-Free Course on Oct 25th, 9-11AM
According to 2012 figures provided by the American Humane Society, pet ownership in the United States has more than tripled in the last four decades, amounting to 62% of American households with at least one pet. Learn the basic information necessary to make the right pet choice for your household, whether through fostering or adoption, and whether a cat or a dog best suits your lifestyle. You will also learn the basics of TNR (trap, neuter, release) so as to reduce the feral cat population in your neighborhood. The guest lecturer for this course is John C. Thomas, executive director of Protectors of Animals, a nonprofit and volunteer-run organization located in East Hartford.
Instructor: Evelyn Angry-Smith is a reference and instructional librarian at MCC and earned her master of library science degree at Southern Connecticut State University. Prior to working at MCC, she was senior librarian at Hartford Hospital’s Robinson Library, a nursing and allied health library.
