Shelter pup “Jack” pays visit to kids who raised money for PSPCA


Beagle/Bulldog mix “Jack,” currently available for adoption at PSPCA, delighted young animal advocates yesterday with a visit to Caring People Alliance in South Philadelphia.  Elementary students from various schools in the area who participate in CPA’s after school program held a bake sale last week to raise money for their favorite cause – homeless animals – and presented PSPCA with $120 and in-kind gifts of pet treats and toys the students had collected.


PSPCA chose Jack to be the shelter’s ambassador because of his demonstrated love of children.  After a discussion with the students about caring for pets and pet safety, PSPCA staff demonstrated how to approach and pet a new animal and allowed each student to spend some time greeting Jack.


Everyone involved was thrilled at the end of the evening: students, teachers, and parents who had shown up to collect their children were proud of the students’ commitment to an important cause, PSPCA was excited to welcome young animal advocates to its mission, and Jack was overjoyed at the loving attention he had received.


As we approach the launch of our Humane Education program, we look forward to expanding the opportunities we have to teach both children and adults about animal welfare.
