Sometimes tails wagging are all the thanks one needs. Such was the case for Sam
Dunphy-Miller and Justin Roberts donation project.
The two Westwood Bales students wanted to do something that would help
animals. They decided to set up a program to accept donations for the Friendswood
Animal Control Shelter.
It was a great success! With all of the items donated by the students at
Westwood-Bales, the two boys filled the back of a pickup truck!
The Friendswood Animal Control shelter manager, Lisa Bragg, was so excited to
see all of the donations.
As quickly as the boys got the items unloaded and into the shelter, volunteers
were coming and taking them to where they were needed most.
Lisa Bragg then took the boys on a tour of the facility, where they got to give the
dogs some of the treats they collected, and they were able to use the new toys to play
with the cats.
The two saw the front office, the storage room, the cleaning and laundry room,
the surgery/medical room, as well as the dog and cat kennels. Their favorite part was
running with Corky in the back yard, according to Justin who would like his mom to
agree to adopt the dog.
“They feel really good about themselves, as well they should! This was their idea
– no one else’s – and they saw it through to the end! We are super proud of both Sam and
Justin. They are the future of animal rescue!” their moms, Kristin Miller, Kim Dunphy
and Bridget Montgomery said.
