We at the FOS feel that education
is the best way to make a difference in reducing the number of unwanted
animals in Bell County. To that end, we sponsor annual subscriptions
to KIND News, the bi-monthly kids’ newspaper of the Humane Society of
the United States. Every fourth-grade, and some primary grades, in Bell
County receives this publication free of charge.
If you would like to help us in
this endeavor, we do encourage personal sponsorships in the form of our
“Adopt a Classroom” program. If you would like to pay for a subscription,
either for a fourth grade class or for any other grade level, please contact
our Education Coordinator, Martha Wiley, at
Martha_Wiley@bellsouth.net. The classroom will receive a certificate
announcing your generous gift. The cost per classroom is just $22/year.
FOS will also supply a speaker to
any civic or school group. In addition, Charlotte Newland, and her
dog Mollie, will travel to schools, nursing homes, and community groups
to illustrate the basics of pet care and handling. Nothing beats
a hands-on experience for learning how to care for pets. Contact Martha
Wiley if you would like to schedule a speaker.
