Animal Rescue League

Lynn Lewis, Caleb Snyder, and Jadyn Steinkuehler

Today at the Animal Rescue League, we got to spend time with dogs, cats, horses, rats and bunnies. We also donated yummy treats and gave them lots of toys. We got to pet and hold many animals such as Oliver the cat. We met Bella the puppy, who apparently has “hops” (can jump very high) according to several people. We learned all about the ARL and the animals and we had a lot of fun. We donated stuff for the animals. We learned how to volunteer at the ARL and how old you have to be. We loved going to see all the needy animals. Adopt one today!Deerfield
