Nigel and I met regularly first semester with Powell Elementary School fourth graders. The inquisitive students travelled recently to the League to see firsthand what happens in the shelter and medical center. They asked great questions and eagerly volunteered during animal interactions. They absorbed everything they learned. Their wonderful thank you notes confirmed their concern for the animals. I shared those letters with the entire Washington Animal Rescue League staff this morning, and invited my coworkers to stop by my office to see the beautiful drawing of Nigel hanging on my wall. The artwork was created by Gabriel, and the poster was signed by the entire class.
Ms. Stoessel, Powell Elementary School librarian, and fourth graders pose with Nigel. Gabriel (center )is displaying the portrait of Nigel that he created. Nigel is amazed by the likeness!

"Thank you for showing us cool tricks with the dogs and letting us do the tricks with them...." Steven
