The students at Staunton Elementary had some special visitors Monday.

Adoptable pets from the Clay County Humane Society stopped in to visit each classroom.

During November, the students engaged in penny wars to raise money for the Humane Society.

"The student council sponsored the wars and the winning class will receive a movie and snack next week," student council sponsor Denise Brush said.

Sally Hassler's third-grade class won with a total of $119, but for the animals at the shelter there is no loser.

The school collected a total of $618.83, which will be used to provide items for the animals such as cat litter and food.

"We are very appreciative of the extra help," Shelter Manager Brittney Tucker said. "Every little bit helps."

The humane society is always looking for donations of cat liter, dog and cat food, and blankets as well as treats.

For more information, contact the humane society at 446-5126.
