2nd-graders learn about adoptions from humane society

Troy Shorewood Elementary School second-graders and their teachers, including Michelle McCabe, were recently visited by Will County Shorewood Humane Society representatives Malorie Ernest and Liz Christensen and two of its adoptable puppies after the students donated money to the not-for-profit organization.
Troy Shorewood Elementary School second-graders and their teachers, including Michelle McCabe, were recently visited by Will County Shorewood Humane Society representatives Malorie Ernest and Liz Christensen and two of its adoptable puppies after the students donated money to the not-for-profit organization.

After reading a story about giving, second grade students at Troy Shorewood Elementary School decided to collect coins to help the Will County Humane Society in Shorewood.

Little by little, they amassed $145 for the no-kill shelter and gave representatives the check in Michelle McCabe’s classroom in December.

In turn, shelter representatives Malorie Ernest and Liz Christensen visited the second graders. They thanked them for the donation, explained the adoption process and discussed what items are best to donate: food, litter, blankets, beds, office supplies and monetary donations.

Two shelter residents, Elf, a miniature pinscher Chihuahua, and Scout, a beagle, also visited the students. Ernest said the shelter houses about 75 cats and 30 dogs at any given time.
