This is from an article from my local no-kill shelter. I cannot say enough about the Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center (link to site). Not only do they take in and rehome dogs and cats, but they are involved in the social aspects of animal welfare, one of which is outreach to schools, families, and youth organizations, and what they can do for our animal companions.
“Estella decided that instead of receiving birthday gifts for herself she would ask friends and family to give gifts to the Pet Adoption Center. And boy did they! Thank you Estella (and brother Cole) for your generous spirit.”
What good example these children are — Estella and Cole will probably go on to be great animal caretakers and teachers.
