Animals In Focus is an outreach program that is dedicated in strengthening the animal-human bond and helps foster an interest in the animal sciences. Animals In Focus serves not only the community and underserved regions in Mississippi but also focuses on reaching elementary age students through regular school visits and after-school programs. In return, students learn how to safely interact with dogs and also begin to place a higher value on the lives of animals and humans.
Since 2016, Animals In Focus has made twice a month visits to Palmer Home. Individual mentorship and the use of animals in these visits often prove to be therapeutic for the children.

Current research supports the idea that children perform better when animals are routinely present in academic settings. These interactive experiences have proven effective for students who have emotional illnesses, attention and behavioral difficulties or physical and mental disabilities.
