AND THE AWARD GOES TO…

Meet Magnum, a three year old Catahoula Leopard dog mix and the first Canine Good Citizen of the Humane Society at Lakewood Ranch! Bright Futures is the brainchild of dog trainer and volunteer Cindy Skarda. Cindy teaches other volunteers like Elizabeth Lynne (pictured below with Magnum), how to train the shelter dogs. This program allows the animals to learn good behavior and obedience skills in the belief that a well mannered dog is an adoptable dog. The weekly classes also help show the volunteers how to handle a variety of breeds, temperaments and behavioral issues they could encounter in a shelter environment.
Well the proof is in the pudding because Magnum has been adopted and is on his way to his new forever home!
