This month, we're celebrating a Roots & Shoots group in Dorado, Puerto Rico for their impressive work on behalf of people, animals, and the environment! Pawsitive Action is led by group leader Carlo and his sister Claudia. Carlo says, "Pawsitive Action is the first nonprofit organization of its kind in Puerto Rico. We provide materials and volunteer services to shelters across the island, and we are entirely managed by students. The Pawsitive Action Food Collection was the first project carried out by our organization. It was carried out in two separate schools, as well as participating businesses, such as Walgreens. We collected more than 1,000 pounds of cat and dog food for the Save a Sato shelter. We've been featured front page in the newspaper, and we met Jane Goodall during her recent visit to the island."
