But our mission does not end at our shelter’s door. ROAR’s staff and volunteers are also committed to enhancing the remarkable bond between people and pets through our education and outreach programs, enriching the quality of lives throughout our community. For example, ROAR is a presence in schools at all levels, sharing information about the rewards and responsibilities of pet ownership, and working with student groups in developing ways to “give back” to animals in need.
