Celebrating 100 days of school

Friday, January 23, 2009

Jackson Township Elementary students had a special visit Friday from Clay County Humane Shelter Manager Rick Moore and dog, Survivor. Students were encouraged to bring in items or monetary donations for celebration of the first 100 days of school. Moore talked to students about the purpose of the shelter and the responsibilities of pet ownership. Survivor also brought a few puppies along for students to play with. Kimberly Gleason Photo.

Glad to see this. Survivor is a sweetie. Got to "meet" him. Wish more would contribute to our humane society.

It must be bad....the humane shelter is out trying to get 1st graders to donate their milk money.

Another good example of the humane society trying to save face...

Guess they could go to that school because it is in the county!

I'm not a huge supporter of the Humane Shelter, I think it is a wonderful and much needed organization but it's not a priority of mine. My children donated to this mission with great excitement. They both learned a few lessons in all this. One, how nice it is to give and second they learned compassion and it was a highlight of their week!

If you don't like the Humane Shelter please keep your negative comments to yourself. I don't support some things in this community but I keep my opinion to myself, because I have the common sense to know that it might mean a lot to someone else.

Who ever organized this, my family thanks you!

Yes sassypants it is in the county and they will not go to the city. That is not really fair.

Did the elementaries in town collect items to donate ? Jackson does every year and they have a program for the kids when they pick up all the pet goodies.
