Grade 5 decided to sponsor a dog from Animal Refuge Kansai – an NPO based in Nose who’s been rescuing (mainly) cats and dogs from suffering around Japan. (homepage here: http://www.arkbark.net).
The aim was to:
Since then, some children have gone to visit Wireless (their sponsored Dog) at ARK and have walked him around the beautiful forest surrounding the animal refuge center. While visiting, they can also see how a rescue center operates, how they can get involved more and how the abandoned animals are cared for. Here are just a couple of pictures from some of the kids visit recently. Every time they visit ARK they leave with happy memories of the place, and now with the sponsorship certificate, they also feel that they have accomplished something great and that they are involved in caring for these cats and dogs.
