Renbrook School will be holding a fundraiser for Fidelco, which will be attended by ‘Bree’ the Fidelco puppy as well as family dogs.

Renbrook School ninth-grader and Burlington resident, Aubrey B. is officially a Fidelco Puppy Raiser!
Volunteers like Aubrey take pups at about eight weeks old, love and care for them, and participate in weekly activities at the Fidelco Training Center. When the pups are approximately 14 months old, they return them to Fidelco for formal guide dog training. Way to go Aubrey!
Aubrey’s commitment to raising a Fidelco puppy dovetails nicely with the seventh grade’s scientific study of people’s strong connection with dogs – and vice versa. The “Dog Unit” will culminate with a fundraiser for Fidelco, and during the unit the students will meet Fidelco representatives, a master dog trainer, therapy dogs, and they can bring in their own family dog, as well. And, of course, Aubrey’s puppy, “Bree,” will be present at the fundraiser!
