Puppy Petting Zoo Raises Money for Syrian Refugees

The semi-annual event was organized by a student organization within the Marshall School of Business.

A puppy petting zoo was held on campus Thursday to raise money for refugees from Syria.

The temporary petting zoo - held outside the Von Kleinsmid Center - is held semi-annually on campus and was organized by Net Impact Undergraduate.

Organizers say all funds raised Thursday will be donated to World Vision International, which provides food, hygiene kits and shelter to nearly 200,000 Syrian refugees who have fled from their homes because of the devastations of war. Last year, the petting zoo raised $500.

Net Impact Undergraduate, an organization sponsored by the Marshall School of Business, is part of a international network that uses business skills and resources to make a positive impact on global issues.
