Why I Chose To Help Dogs
about the shelter
Operation Ava/ Saved Me provides the dogs a safe, responsible, and loving home for recuses. All of their dogs are rescue dogs. They are focused on saving and rescuing many lives. Save me is against any kind of animal abused. For any one who wants to adopt they have to make sure they will give them a good home, I really like that because then the animals won't go off with a person who will not provide them what they need. As for medical care , Save Me has a partnership with "The Pet Mechanic" that is where they get very good medical care and treatment for injured, sick, abused, and neglected dogs. The people that volunteer at "Save Me" are compassionate loving individuals. They take time out of their day to come and help these dogs for free. They inspire me to do better in anything that I choose to believe in. I can tell that they LOVE helping animals.
For my TCA project I decided to help a shelter called Saved Me, formally known as Operation AVA. I really wanted to help the dogs at this shelter because they don't have a family. To me it is very sad, I really wanted to make these dogs feel happy. For my project i am being sponsored by Petco, they gave me some toys to give to the animals. Then I found a recipe to make little paw shaped treats for the dogs.
I used this cake mix to make my treats. I added peanut butter to one batch, and sweat potatoes to the other.
Making The Treats
I used 1/3 cup of water, 1/4 cup of oil, and the mix.
I used these Silicone molds to shape the treats. I used dog bone molds and dog paw molds.
I met Sue the manager at Petco. She gave me this huge box of toys for the dogs. Petco believes every animal deserves a loving home.
After I took them out of the oven they looked awesome. This was the peanut butter batch.
This was a picture of me standing outside of the shelter .I was so excited to be there.
