Second-graders help dogs in need

Jennie Warmouth’s second-grade class at Spruce Elementary in Lynnwood has been writing online descriptions for adoptable dogs for more than a decade.

This year, her class took it a step further by organizing and promoting an eight-day fundraiser at their school.

The drive culminated with the class presenting a $387.57 check to the CEO of PAWS, an animal shelter and adoption agency.

The donation goes toward caring for dogs being transferred from shelters in Texas to the Northwest.

“In Texas shelters, highly-adoptable dogs are at risk of being euthanized due to overcrowding,” a news release said. “In the Northwest, many shelters have room to accommodate these homeless animals due to high demand from our animal-loving community.”

Those looking to donate to the cause can visit facebook.com/MiracleK9 or www.give.paws.org.
