The Lost Angels Animal Rescue
organization sent volunteers to the J.E. Robins Elementary School to read to children and teach them about animal rescue, according to WOWK-TV News.
As part of the student's story and craft time, animal rescue volunteers talked to the children about how to care for pets and what is involved in rescuing animals.
Events such as these show that adults can help to instill in young children a love for animals and begin to sow the seeds for future efforts in animal rescue.
“We see that passion in the children when they come to our booth. Maybe someday they will go on to be a vet or a volunteer. We hope this inspires them," Amanda Woods, one of the animal rescue volunteers, told the news source.
The volunteers and children worked together to create pieces of art, as well. The artwork will be on display at the Southridge Center PetSmart over the weekend of April 29.
The Lost Angels Animal Rescue is a Kanawha County non-profit organization that aims to educate the public on animal adoption and rescue, while helping animals find homes. One of the solutions to animal over-population recommended by many animal rescue shelters is to have pets spayed or neutered.
