  • Description of the Project:
  • In New Zealand, too people write off rescue dogs as second-rate mutts, so finding homes for them is difficult. MINI, one of the SPCA’s key sponsors agreed to help.
    
    If more people knew how smart these animals really are, more would get adopted. So, we taught three SPCA dogs to drive a car.
