Wolfe students enjoy visit to Animal Shelter

Employees at the Union County Animal Shelter were very grateful for items collected and donated by students from Wolfe School.

Students from Wolfe School had quite a treat recently when they visited the Union County Animal Shelter.

The students toured the facility Dec. 4, 2013, and visited the many homeless cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies.

“Students were even able to hold and pet those adorable animals,” said Wolfe teacher Ellen LeRoy. “It was so exciting to watch the faces of students light up as they interacted with the animals.”

As a part of this community experience, students from Linda Bapst’s an Ellen LeRoy’s classes collected items to donate to the shelter.

They were able to collect several boxes full of food, treats, toys, and blankets.

“The employees at the shelter were very grateful for everything that was given to these animals and very impressed with the way the students interacted with the animals,” LeRoy said.

In turn, the staff of Wolfe School is sincerely grateful for the kindness and love that was shown to our students during this community experience.
