Milo and his big sister, Mila, enjoy weekly trips to the beach. When Milo was at our shelter, he had no idea what a fun life was in store for him. He was adopted by Greg who decided it was time to get his rottweiler a companion. Now, these two are an inseperable pair.
As part of their Social Studies programme, the Omololu International School Grade 7 class is focusing on becoming well-rounded global citizens who live with intent. Part of this initiative began with the students designing a campaign to collect pet food for the Anguilla Animal Rescue Foundation (AARF). Students worked together to design a logo, create posters, flyers and a slogan for the pet food drive.
The activity ended with a visit to the shelter.
Students delivered their batch of donations and handed them over to the shelter volunteers. The class was able to learn about AARF and understand the functions of the shelter. Through a tour, students were able to observe how the AARF volunteers take care of the animals. During the visit, they also had the opportunity to play with the rescued animals. Dogs and cats at AARF are frequently advertised for adoption on the their social media pages.
The Grade 7 students will be raising awareness and collecting donations for other causes in Anguilla as the school year progresses. As a cause of these actions, Grade 7 will be able to give back to the community and learn more things about volunteerism.
