BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA BEACH, FLORIDA – Twenty-one Roosevelt Elementary 5th and 6th graders in the Talented and Gifted program are making a difference in the lives of shelter animals, as part of a unique program called “Canine Commandos.”

Each month, the students visit the Brevard Humane Society to socialize, help teach commands, and most of all, show the shelter animals love and affection, so they will learn to trust people again.

Time is spent training in small groups with an appointed licensed dog trainer. Then, students enjoy reading to the dogs in the kennel, which has a calming effect on them.

There is also interaction with cats in the cat room, and the “critter room,” which houses smaller pets such as guinea pigs, mice, rats, birds, and rabbits.
