We Helped the Shelter

Each year my kindergarten class does three service projects.  One is for an animal shelter.  This is a great way to remind small children to RESPECT AND BE KIND TO ALL LIVING THINGS.

This year my class collected items for the animal shelter where my sweet Ruby came from.  We had bottles of bleach, laundry detergent, Dawn detergent, blankets, towels, wash cloths, and treats!  I delivered the items to the shelter Saturday.  I had a car full including the trunk.

Ruby went with me on the trip so Laurie, the shelter owner could see how well she is.
 When Ruby arrived at the shelter as a stray, she was in terrible shape with heartworms, hook worms, ear infections, a respitory infection, and very under-nourished.  It is amazing she survived the heart worm treatment.

Here is a photo of Ruby shortly after she arrived at the shelter.   She was so sick and terrified.

Now here is a photo of Ruby Saturday with Laurie. She is very happy and very healthy.  We need more people in the world like Laurie.
