Recently, the Houston Humane Society was contacted by a group of students from River Oaks Elementary. Every year, fifth grade students from the school identify a problem in their community and conduct research around the topic for the school’s annual Exhibition. This group was working on a project about animal abandonment and came to HHS to conduct interviews with several staff members on the subject. As part of their research, they also had to develop an action plan to positively impact the problem.
Their action plan included holding a drive for items on the HHS wish list. Because of their efforts, we received a large amount of pet food, treats, toys, and even office supplies such as a new desktop printer! Sophia, Joline, and Luke have also become animal advocates, who can speak to the importance of spaying/neutering pets and know that the best furr-ever friends can be found at the Houston Humane Society!
