Companion Animal Care Program 🐱
Companion Animal Care students have been out in our community making a difference. Some students have completed volunteer orientations at Roice-Hurst and are starting to volunteer weekly this month. The students will be assisting Roice-Hurst in their March surgery days learning the ins and outs of how much Roice-Hurst does for our community, We are also excited to announce that we are finishing up the orientation at Mesa County Animal Shelter and will be volunteering there weekly starting this month as well. This is such exciting news for our students in our program, this really puts them on the career path to loving, learning, and caring for our animals!

Winter may be nearing its end, but no one at InSTEPS has been hibernating! "Action" has been the name of the game as our participants took third place in the Special Olympics basketball tournament held at CMU. InSTEPS rock stars have also been gearing up for snowshoeing. In addition to winter sports, participants had a blast at the Eureka Math and Science Center. They also helped plan and complete a lovely Valentine's Day Party. With warm weather around the corner, more opportunities for adventure abound!
