The first week in May marks the annual celebration of Be Kind to Animals Week. The Washington Animal Welfare League is marking the event in a BIG way. We are hosting a photo exhibit at the U. S. House of Representatives Rayburn Building on Thursday, May, 7th. The photos -- of dogs, cats, WARL staff and volunteers, -- were taken by 15 Whittier Education Center fifth graders. Whittier is a school located several blocks from the League. The students, and their teacher Ms. Anderson, walked to the League to visit the animals and take pictures. They learned about photography from nature photographer Joanne Miller. Their images tell the story of A Day in the Life of the Shelter. See the photos at the Rayburn Building from 10:00 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. on May 7th. A special reception honoring the students will be held at 4:30 p.m. with Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton speaking at 5:00 p.m.
