Shelter dogs from the Humane Animal Welfare Society (HAWS) will be paired with Carroll University Animal Behavior students for the spring semester.

Students met their new 'classmates' Sunday, Jan. 17, for the second year of the partnership between HAWS and Carroll.

For the spring semester, students will live and work with the dogs to train them in preparation to be adopted at the end of the academic year.

Before being matched with a student, the dogs were fostered by Carroll University faculty and staff.

As the second year of the program, this gives students a unique opportunity for around the clock learning and lets the dogs flourish in healthy environments instead of being in a shelter.
