Jefferson Students Make Beds, Toys for Shelter Pets

The Community Service/Leadership Club presented 28 pet beds and 56 toys to the Animal Humane Society of New Mexico.

Jefferson Middle School has a Community Service/Leadership after school club that is making a difference in the lives of shelter pets. The club worked for a month making handmade beds for dogs and cats then braiding the scraps of fleece into pet toys.

The club then invited the Animal Humane Society of New Mexico to speak at one of their meetings where they presented 56 toys and 28 pet beds. The members took time to learn about the mission of the shelter and about possible careers working with animals. Animal Humane sent the group a special thank you for making homeless pets a priority.

The Community Service/Leadership club at Jefferson Middle School has done many things for their school and community this semester. From helping to set up for community school events,  to creating over 500 positive post-it notes for school lockers, the group is always giving. Students learn leadership skills and work together to change the world-one project at a time!
