Penn Alumni Club of Philadelphia Volunteers at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center

Author: Stephanie Yee, C’08

The Penn Alumni Club of Philadelphia recently volunteered at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center. Established in 2007, the Penn Vet Working Dog Center is part of the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Veterinary Medicine and serves as a national research and development center for detection dogs. I first learned about the Penn Vet Working Dog Center from Frankly Penn posts: here and here. I scheduled a group volunteer event for our club members and hoped others loved puppies as much as I do. Little did I know that Penn alumni in Philly LOVE puppies! Our volunteer event filled up in record time of half a day! Here are a few photos from our volunteer event.

With the help of Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator, Pat Kaynaroglu, we got tips about how to help the puppies build their core muscles.
