Community Involvement

SSG has an ongoing partnership with Project POOCH, including a Best Friend-level Sponsorship of the 5th Annual POOCH in the Pub event on November 18, 2011.

About Project POOCH: Founded by Joan Dalton in 1993, Project POOCH, Inc. partners youths who are incarcerated at the MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility with homeless shelter dogs. The young people in the program work to help the dogs learn positive reinforcement and behavior modification, and in turn develop personal and vocational skills that they use for the rest of their lives.
