The A.P.P.L.E. after-school program hosts the Andalusia Humane Society every Thursday in meetings designed to expose the animals to children, and raise awareness of the animals that still need homes.

Barbara Tyler, who coordinates A.P.P.L.E. and also volunteers with the Andalusia Humane Society, helped organize the event along with AHS’s Debora Evans.

“The event first started in the summer, the APPLE program children would come and walk the dogs in our dog park.” Evans explained.

“The kids absolutely loved it, so we incorporated it as a regular thing for the APPLE program.” Christine Holley, one of the instructors at APPLE, said.

The children will also be volunteering at the Andalusia Area Humane Society’s annual Doggy Dash this Sat., Sept. 23, starting at 9:30 a.m.
