Tessie Sarmiento, President of Brownsville Animal Defense (BAD), spoke to Canales Elementary 5th grade students about the proper care of cats and dogs.  The star of the show was Betsy, the Australian Blue Heeler, who belongs to Connie Sue Pinkerton-Lopez, the Canales librarian. Pinkerton-Lopez arranges this educational presentation each year and the students love learning how to be responsible pet owners.
