A Four Legged Visitor at Stonehedge

  Caring and Compasion

Students had a few very special visitors last week from the SPCA. Nancy was accompanied by her puppy Sky as she explained how the SPCA cares for a variety of animals until a permanent home can be found. It was interesting to learn what types of unusual animals they care for such as a duck with an injured foot, horses from a local farm that could no longer care for them and even a 4 day old bull that soon grew to be enormous!

Students learned what support this organization needs from the community in order to continue its charitable works as well as how families can visit the center to consider adopting a pet. The center is in constant need of supplies such as newspaper, clay cat litter, dog and cat beds, and Friskies wet cat food just to name a few.  We will be collecting donations that will be picked up by the SPCA. Nancy is thrilled that we are involved and willing to help.  A flyer will be sent home with students outlining the specific items requested as well as a timeline for our supply drive.   If your family is interested in learning more about the SPCA, you can visit the webpage at for more information.
