TriCounty Health Teen Outreach Program Offers Christmas Service

Dogs in need of Christmas goodwill are in luck at the Roosevelt Animal Shelter. TriCounty Health Department’s Teen Outreach Program encouraged members to find a way to serve this holiday season. “The high school group chose to do the dog shelter [and] the jr. high school group made and delivered cards to the folks at The Villa,” shares TriCounty Health representative Jeramie Tubbs. Both groups are active in Duchesne County. The high school group made bags for 20 dogs and 15 cats that included Christmas goodies, toys and warm weather pet apparel for some of the shelter animals. The junior high group chose to make homemade Christmas cards to hand deliver to residents of The Villa in Roosevelt. Tubbs says the health department is still working to establish Teen Outreach groups in Uintah County.
