Bios help animals find homes

Student at Animal Care Sanctuary

Partnering with community organizations to help teach students is an important part of education. With collaboration and learning in mind, Tiger Ventures students recently spent time getting to know many of the rescued, homeless animals at the Animal Care Sanctuary.  English teacher Kelli Krieger took her students to the sanctuary so they could meet the animals to create bios for each of the animals to help them find their forever homes.  

Students interviewed staff about the history of the animal and then spent some time with it to get a feel for its personality and any unique characteristics. After taking notes and gathering information, students will write bios that will be posted on the sanctuary’s social media platforms, in its newsletters and on national pet adoption forums.

Ellen Feldman, president of the sanctuary, said it was great to see the students working to help out, adding, “This is a terrific example of applied learning, community engagement, and helping their communities tackle a social challenge that exists across America.”

Thank you to Animal Care Sanctuary for inviting our students and thank you Tiger Ventures students for helping to give these animals their forever home.
