Path for Paws

Each Leadership Development Academy of Rock County participant works with a small group of their fellow class members to plan and execute a collaborative project that addresses a community need. These projects and their results are presented each May and serve as the program's capstone experience.

Path for Paws

Helping Pets go Home Again One Brick at a Time: The campaign was organized by Jessica Johnson, Donna Sykora, Robert Bastien, Michael Reuter, Jamie Merath, and Kaili Lee all currently enrolled in the Rock County Leadership Development Academy. This group chose to develop the Path for Paws fundraising campaign as their year-long community service project to benefit the Humane Society of Southern Wisconsin. Through the sale of engraved bricks for a 20-by-20 foot patio at the animal shelter 100% of funds raised will go towards the purchase of new veterinary equipment to be used by Rock County Humane Society’s new onsite veterinarian.
