Last week Baytown Humane Society was asked to
visit Ashbel Smith Elementary School in Baytown
to receive a very large donation of dog and cat
food, treats, and toys! The effort was decided
and promoted by the school's "Apache Safety
Patrol" which consists of fourteen 5th-graders
under the guidance of the school's Counselor,
Ms. Erika Leal.
is so inspiring to see students this young show
that they are learning to 'give back' and to
donate to such a worthy cause as helping animals
in need. I explained to them that these goods
will go to chained, neglected, and often abused
animals in the Third Ward. These animals often
go hungry for long periods of time, and then
most are fed only scraps. This offering of food
is truly a much-needed and life-altering boon to
these particular animals!
A sincere "THANK YOU" goes
out to Ashbel Smith's Apache Safety Patrol,
Students, and Counselor Leal for this
thoughtful and vital donation! Keep up your
good works and PLEASE always keep animals on
your list of deserving causes.
