How to Help
How Your Classroom Can Help Animals
Empower your students to make a difference. Your classroom can help animals! Here are a few simple ways that you can help:
Have a Collection Drive
Click here to see a list of items that your class can collect. After your collection drive, book a field trip to The Anti-Cruelty Society and your students can deliver their donations in person.
Make It Yourself Donations
Students of all ages will have fun making cat and dog toys and the animals will enjoy the results. The toys can be made from items that the students can bring from home such as old t-shirts and blue jeans. Just follow our simple do it yourself instructions and have fun with it. Once you have completed the toys, you can mail them to The Anti-Cruelty Society or book a field trip and your students can deliver the items in person.
