4th period JCHS Service-Learning students are working together to raise awareness and supplies for Companion Animal Rescue and Education during National Animal Shelter Appreciation Week. Students recently heard from Honey Miller, president of C.A.R.E. and Animal Control Officer Wilson, who informed the class of some of the issues concerning animals in Jefferson County.

 

Students are currently working on several projects to improve animal welfare in the county. They’ve recently partnered with the Leo Club at JCHS and students at Maury Middle School to do a collection drive. C.A.R.E is in need of canned dog food, Purina Puppy Chow, Lysol Wipes, and thirty-gallon trash bags. They also need volunteers to foster animals and for people to come in and adopt animals. They have been operating over their maximum capacity since they opened and appreciate any support they can get from the community. They also want to educate people about the importance of spaying and neutering animals. If you would like to donate to their efforts to provide low-cost spay and neutering, please contact them about their Fixin to Save Lives program.
