The Rhodes Student Athletic Advisory Committee (SAAC) recently organized a volunteer outing of Rhodes student-athletes at Streetdog Foundation. It is one of Memphis’ few non-kill shelters and operates on charitable donations and volunteer efforts.

More than 30 Rhodes student-athletes contributed their time as well as toys, treats, and food for the dogs. They performed tasks such as walking dogs, cleaning out examination rooms, cleaning out cages and crates, and cleaning out play areas and common areas at Streetdog′s home facility, Grace Animal Hospital.

Part of the Rhodes SAAC Mission Statement is to reach out to the local community in order to enrich the overall collegiate experience for the student-athlete body at Rhodes.
