Paws Crossed - Animal Rescue Club
Rescue: not just a verb; it's a Promise
Paws Crossed is the Animal rescue club here at Legacy and it’s made up of students who want to give back to the community and who have a love and compassion for animals in need. The group does volunteer work – usually on weekends – for local animal rescue groups and/or shelters, as well as fundraising for supplies and funds to donate toward those groups for the medical treatment of and care for rescued animals. Ms. Anderson is a long-term volunteer for both dog and cat rescues and while she has fostered for both (cat and dog rescues) and continues to do that much of the time, it is certainly not something expected of student volunteers. The idea is to give back to the community and educate young people about the need for rescue, compassion, and human intervention for discarded and abused pets as well as safety in handling and training of those same creatures.
We've started a new partnership with a local kitty rescue group called Averting CAT-astrophe! Janelle and Shallon spent the first day of their Christmas break volunteering with kitties!
Volunteer time with some of our members!
Paws Crossed hosted Dr. Dawn Brown from North Texas Chow Chow Haven who spoke with us about Rescue and the Chow Chow breed! She invited us to volunteer with her at adoption events!
We got to go on a tour of the Mansfield animal shelter. The animal control officer, Mindy Henry, was a wonderful host. What a fantastic opportunity! They are offering us volunteer opportunities!
Ms. Anderson's last foster dog - Rocky. Rocky found his forever home over the summer and is obsessed with his forever mommy and spoiled and endlessly loved. Yay Rocky!
