The Problem

We want to make the animals feel cared for by spending time with cats and dogs at a no-kill shelter, and to possibly bring some pets home. We also donated food to the shelter.

Our Plan

We visited the shelter for 2 hours and played with the indoor and outdoor penned dogs and the indoor cats. One of our students adopted a cat and the other is currently considering fostering cats.
