Helping Hounds comes to Van Duyn!

Pre-K/ 2nd Grade Buddies have once again teamed up to help the Helping Hounds Dog Rescue! They collected items from Helping Hounds' wish list and donated them to the rescued animals at the Helping Hounds Dog Rescue. Students were able to donate items until February 26th, giving Van Duyn plenty of time to collect for those in need. On February 26th, the items were picked up by Pet Partners of Syracuse, an organization that trains service dogs. Pet Partners of Syracuse works in conjunction with Helping Hounds, and brought a few canine visitors. To prepare for the visit, Pre-K students prepared homemade doggie treats in the shape of dogs, dog houses, and bones. The students had a blast, and the dogs were able to get some much needed donations.
