A third grade class at Donlin Drive Elementary recently donated cat and dog food, toys and treats for the Humane Association of CNY's animals.
"The students really wanted to do something for the shelter animals. They asked many important questions when the Humane Association Volunteer came into my class to talk to the children. My students learned a lot from this experience," said Mary Bokuniewicz, the class' teacher.
"We are thankful to our local schools for educating their students at a young age the need to help rescue animals, because they cannot help themselves. And, it is important to teach them that their community service does make a difference. Donations like these help keep our doors open." said Bruce Shafiorff, M.D., Humane Association of CNY foundation board president.
The Humane Association is completely privately funded. That means no government funding help support the Shelter. These animals are supported by the generosity of CNY animal lovers. The Humane Association of CNY is a no-kill, not-for-profit, animal shelter housing anywhere from 200 to 400 animals on a daily basis since 1965.
The shelter is located at 4915 1/2 West Taft Road, Liverpool. The Human Association of CNY is open to the public from noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
