Special Visitors

This week we were visited by approx. 60 children, along with their teachers – the Kindergarten classes from Kettle Falls Elementary. What a great group of kids! They came to meet some of our dogs and to learn how they could best help homeless dogs and cats in their own community. As part of their ‘end of the year’ project, they came and met 4 of our dogs, asked questions and took notes which they will use to write stories about the dogs – something along the lines of “Adopt Me” stories.

Nancy brought 4 of our dogs into our new, but ‘not quite finished’ puppy cabin, where the children could meet the dogs, learn about them from Nancy, and ask questions.

We hope we’ll get the chance to read some of their stories! We’ll try and share some with you here. Thank you to the children and teachers from the Kindergarden classes of Kettle Falls Elementary. We enjoyed your visit!

About colvillevalleyanimalsanctuary

The Colville Valley Animal Sanctuary is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of abandoned, neglected, and otherwise homeless companion animals. We provide both crisis and long-term sheltering, medical care, fostering, and adoption services - all with the goal of placing our animals permanently in safe and loving homes. We spay and neuter all of the animals in our care and actively promote, through financial donations and community support, the effort to reduce the number of unwanted animals in Stevens County. By example and through education, we promote and advance the values of responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals.
