Pi Kappa Phi teamed up with Natchitoches Hope For Paws and the Natchitoches Humane Society to offer some much-needed relief from the stress of the Spring semester. Thursday, March 12, students at Northwestern State University got to spend time between classes playing with shelter dogs.
The fraternity’s annual event, ‘The Puppy Experience,’ is an opportunity to spread the word about two great causes — Pi Kapp’s philanthropy The Ability Experience and pet adoption.
The event, now in its fifth year, allows Pi Kappa Phi members to engage their peers in a conversation about the vision of the philanthropy, “to create a community, one relationship at a time, where the abilities of all people are recognized and valued.”
It also allows event partners to find forever homes for rescued dogs in the Natchitoches.
“NHS rescue dogs Bella, Honey, Meeko, Captain America, Lancelot and Theodore had the best time with NSU Pi Kappa Phi students on campus today. They got lots of exercise, love, and attention,” the Humane Society posted.
‘The Puppy Experience’ has been such a memorable experience, several other student organizations have used it as a model with great success.
