STUDENTS PARTICIPATING IN U.S. BORDER PATROL'S R.E.A.L. MISSION PROGRAM HELP OUT AT BARCC

BARCC

Students participating in the U.S. Border Patrol's R.E.A.L. Mission program had a valuable and educational experience during their visit to the Brownsville Animal Regulation and Care Center (BARCC).

The R.E.A.L. Mission program focuses on mentoring at-risk youth between the ages of 13 to 21, providing them with opportunities for rewarding education, attitude development, and leadership skills.

During their visit to BARCC, members of the Fort Brown Station R.E.A.L. Mission Class 001 gained insights into the care provided for animals and the range of services offered by the shelter. This hands-on experience gave the students a better understanding of the efforts involved in preparing animals for adoption.

The students actively participated in cleaning the shelter and had the chance to interact with the shelter dogs. 

A surprise for some of the shelter pets was that three of the Border Patrol agents who accompanied the students to the shelter ended up adopting three of the shelter dogs.
