Our sincerest thanks to the students, staff, and parents of Stuart Place Elementary for once again showing their support and commitment to the Humane Society and our communities animals by sponsoring their annual “Give a Dog a Bone” campaign.
For the past 5 years during the week long campaign the students are able to purchase dog bone pictures to color to benefit the Humane Society of Harlingen with small bones selling for $1.00 and large bones for $5.00. The colored bones are then featured as decorations for classroom doors and bulletin boards. The Stuart Place Administration provides an added incentive for donating by giving a “Fruit Cup Party” for the classroom on every grade level that raises the most money.
In addition to the annual “Give a Dog a Bone” fundraiser, various Stuart Place Elementary student clubs have sponsored pet food drives to benefit the Humane Society of Harlingen. It would be wonderful to see other schools in our community follow the example set by Stuart Place Elementary and launch their own “Give a Dog a Bone” campaign.
Every day I hear people in the shelter and in the community say things like “someone should do something about the animal problem”. Our shelter is staffed 365 days a year. We are open for adoptions 7 days a week.
We take pets to PetSmart to showcase them for adoption, we go to pet friendly events and promote adoption. We work with the local media to showcase adoptable animals.
Our rescue coordinator spends endless hours of her personal time networking animals to get them pulled from the shelter and then organizing and frequently transporting them herself to get them to the rescue groups who can take them. We go to as many school events as we can possibly go to in order to educate the young people on humane treatment and proper care of animals. We put on monthly vaccination clinics to provide affordable vaccines for the community. Everyone on the staff has fostered animals in their home on their time and at primarily their own expense. There is not a single person on my staff who has animals that are not spayed or neutered, we all set a responsible example by and practicing what we preach.
Ms. Ingram's class at Zavala Elementary did a food drive for us and the Recycling Club donated cans.
