This program is customized to best fit grades K - 2nd.
At a time when every American was asked to make sacrifices for the American war effort, World War II marked the establishment of Dogs for Defense, a program to which families donated their pet dogs to serve in the U.S. military. These four-legged recruits were transformed through training from loving pets into working troops. Students hear the story of Chips, a real Hero Hound who left the family sofa, entered the battlefield, and returned home a hero. Then they will create their own Hero Hound.
