Meyersville School helps Pet Adoptions of Cuero

Here’s a big BowWow and thank you to the students, faculty, parents and staff of the Meyersville Schools from Pet Adoptions of Cuero. This generous group came by last week to the Pet Adoptions shelter in their school bus that was filled to the brim with donations and supplies for the animals.

Approximately 30 students and teachers paid their annual visit to show their support for the non-profit, volunteer-run pet rescue and adoption center. The boys and girls all took part in helping Wednesday afternoon. Dogs were walked, played with and petted and loved the new interaction with the children. 

A room full of kittens got lots of attention as they were cuddled and held and were delightfully purring as they were petted and stroked.  The Board of Directors of Pet Adoptions of Cuero cannot thank this group and many others in the community who continue to come forward and support the efforts of helping abandoned, strayed or unwanted pets get a second chance.

Students were then recognized on stage for their academic achievements.
