VETERINARIN

CLUB LEADERS MRS. REES & MRS. WRIGHT

Veterinarian Club continued working on its pet picture collage in the hallway. They are also working on taking up donations for the Saginaw animal shelter. A note was written and printed off and sent home from school to let them know about our pet supply drive. We are asking parents, teachers and families to donate pet food, dog toys, dog beds, old used towels, rawhides, treats etc for the shelter pets waiting for new homes. We finished the day by making all natural animal dog treats for their pets at home. These were made from with canned pumpkin and rolled oats and the club members rolled out the dough and used various animal themed cookie cutters to cut out the treats. Those without pets at home left theirs for donating to the local shelter pets. Students that took their treats home reported that they were a big hit with their dogs.
