Students from the British School of D.C. didn't want to just help the animals, they wanted to purchase something very special and very much needed for the Washington Animal Rescue League. It all started when the students heard League veterinarian, and mother of two British School of D.C. students, Dr. Rebecca Maddinson speak about the League's mission -- to rehab, rehabilitate, and rehome animals. The School Council, comprised of children from each class, decided that the nearly $500 raised through an an Easter Egg Hunt for the primary school children of the British School of Washington should go to purchase something useful for the shelter. They agreed on three pairs of clippers -- useful, practical, and very much needed. Earlier in the year, the Medical Center's clippers disappeared. It's impossible to groom extremely matted dogs without the proper tools.
The British School of D.C.'s Primary School Head Girl, Mina Turunc, & her counterpart, Head Boy Alejandro Di Napoli visited the League to present their very much appreciated gift to the medical center.
