From June 3rd-10th, eight students and one faculty member traveled to Georgetown, South Carolina, to spend their week volunteering with the South Carolina Coastal Animal Rescue & Educational Sanctuary (SC-Cares), a no-kill, no-breed shelter for unwanted, abused and neglected exotic animals.

APSU students spent the week helping expand a tortoise enclosure and doing maintenance repairs on a habitat for wolves. In between inclement weather from tropical storms, they spent a day enjoying the beach.

The Alternative Break program is organized by APSU’s Center for Service-Learning & Community Engagement. Through a written application, students are selected to participate in a variety of service projects throughout the country that are organized by student leaders and faculty/staff advisors. A total of 10 trips were scheduled throughout the 2015-2016 academic year, during the fall, winter, spring and summer.
