My project will bring awareness to the animals who don't have homes.

In our rural area, animals are often at the bottom of people's list of concerns. As a result, the local shelter depends heavily on donations from the community, including the Voice for the Animals Campaign. The Voice for the Animals Campaign will purchase a needed item that will directly improve the lives of animals in the shelter.

Students will attend a meeting with a guest speaker who brings a dog and discusses responsible pet ownership. At the next meeting students will make either a toy or a fleece blanket to be donated to the animal shelter. A list of other suggested donations will be distributed to the school and collected in the school office. Roots & Shoots students will make a sign to go on the donation collection container. As a culmination, parents will transport students to the animal shelter with their donations.

We are currently trying to raise the funds to purchase a small portable building where we can teach our classes. Our facility is very "rustic" without power and running water so, the portable building will be wired for a generator to run lights and AC so everyone can learn out of the elements. We have already purchased the learning materials, a TV with a DVD player and VHS, we also have a very extensive library, over 300 books, videos & DVD's, that we will finally be able to share with people as we currently have nowhere to keep it. This project is ready to go, we just need the portable building.

I will reach out to the local animal shelter and organize a visit and tour to learn more about their mission as a nonprofit and about adoption centers in general and how to support them.

I will reach out to a local adoption center, Adopt-A-Dog, and organize an hour long presentation on animal discrimination as part of Diversity Awareness Week, a week celebrating and empowering young people to realize the power in unity and inclusiveness amongst people in a variety of areas. This presentation will present background on animal discrimination for certain dog breeds, be interactive for students to gain a better understanding of this issue by asking questions, and leave students enlightened and questioning their previous ingrained views on certain animals.

We will welcome the pubic to come in, see what we do and meet the animals. We hope to gain new members, donations to help support the animals under our care and hopefully bring awareness to people about horse slaughter and how they can help Stop the Shipping of Horses to Slaughter in the USA.

My Roots & Shoots Club will hold a school-wide event inviting students and staff to come bake the treats for the shelter animals together after school while also raising awareness for the easy and fun ways to support animals in finding their forever homes in adoption centers.
