BIOLOGY PROFESSORS HULLENDER AND HEARD AND THEIR STUDENTS AT UWG DONATE PET FOOD ON VALENTINE’S DAY 2012
This is the fourth time that Professor Melissa Hullender and her biology classes at UWG have so generously supported the animals at the shelter and the animals in families who are feeling the pinch in this economy by collecting pet food. This time she was joined by Professor Heard and his biology classes. The food collected will be shared between the shelter animals and the CCHS Empty Pet Bowls program. The latter program distributes free pet food to individual families and to social service agencies so that pet owners do not have to give up their pets due to financial hardship.
Here are the results: Over 950 lbs. of dry dog food was donated! This breaks down to approximately 150 bags of dog food, as well as some canned food. More than 123 students took part in this dog food drive.
Professor Hullender speaks for all of us when she says: “I am very proud that the generosity of the UWG biology students has now stocked the shelter pantry with over 150 bags of dog food.” We all share her pride in these students. We can only imagine how many animals’ lives will be positively affected by their compassion.
