SCUGOG: The Pegasus Animal Sanctuary is hosting a youth summer program event, on Sunday, August 27th.
The event will be held from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at their site, at 2090 Scugog Line 3, in Port Perry, and is open to any student aged 12 to 19.
The program will feature: a tour of the local sanctuary; learning sessions, regarding factory farming and animal welfare; advocacy workshops; and free draws. The program is titled “The Power of Sanctuary.”
“'The Power of Sanctuary' is an opportunity for young people to engage in learning about farm animal protection; but is unique in the sense, it offers a chance to meet and interact with those at the centre of our focus, the animals themselves. It’s not often students are able to engage with who they’re trying to impact, and The Power of Sanctuary will offer exactly that. The afternoon will be full of engaging tours, powerful learning sessions, exciting activities, and will also provide an occasion for youth to connect with like-minded peers and create lasting memories,” an online post explained. “Best of all, any young person who attends this program will be welcomed into the Pegasus community which is full of countless benefits, like future engagement opportunities, chances to obtain volunteer hours, leadership roles, and much more.”
