Being Kind to Animals All Year Long!
Last week, May 5th 11th, marked the 104th clebration of Be Kind to Animals Week. While such a commemoration is nice, we think being kind to animals should be every day, of every month, of every year. Madison, a Stone Ridge of the Sacred Heart student must think so, too. In September 2018 she and her classmate Sarah co-founded BARK! an on campus club that met monthly during the school year to raise awareness and money for the animals. Recently, they focused on helping shelter animals. through the sale of Pura Vida bracelets . They sold so many bracelets that they contributed more than $1,000 to help HRA help the animals. Earlier in the year they made cat dancers ourt of pipe cleaners and straws for our many shelter cats. And, last Friday several members of the group, along with their advisor, and Madison's dad visited our Oglethorpe Street shelter to see just exactly how their generous donations were being used. In addition, they went to work helping us promote some of our adoptable animals on their own social networks. The girls concluded the visit by stating that their efforts will not end with the close of the school year. They are planning on continuing to do their good work through BARK! during the 2019-20 school year.On behalf of the animals, thanks ladies!
