There are more people then me who care about our furry friends. Several of my classmates are doing Culminating projects that, like mine, involve domesticated animals and the problems surrounding them.  Two of my classmates, Ella and Luna, are partners in their CP, in which they plan to hold an appropriately named “Dog-A-Thon.” Their main project is to raise awareness about the animals being killed in shelters, and are working with the animal shelter known as Save-A-Pet.  To assist with their awareness raising of no-kill shelters, they are hosting a 5-k run in the Prairie Crossing neighborhood in Grayslake, Illinois.  They are collecting donations for Save-A-Pet, including but not limited to: cat/dog food and treats, leashes and collars, sponges, and paper plates and towels.  Why they need paper plates, I do not know, but it’s on the list.  Bring your dogs, children, weird uncles, cool hats; they need all the support they can get.  Refreshments will be served, and at least one donation is required. Please email for more information.
