Greenbrier Academy's Cat and Dog Programs are a favorite among students.
Following a recent relaunch of the program, we now work closely with a local animal rescue team called “Operation Underdog.” Operation Underdog works with local animals shelters and rescue groups to help prevent euthanasia, establish foster homes, and organize vetting. Working with Operation Underdog, GBA’s dog program, now called “Underdog Academy,” fosters up to 4 dogs at a time.
Greenbrier students feed, water, walk, and train the dogs while they are with us. Our girls care for the dogs on their own time, even if it means giving up free time for themselves. The Underdog Academy program teaches our students responsibility while providing a place for them to focus on something bigger than their individual selves.
