Animal Impact advocates for animals in need

November 1, 2017

With all of the clubs that HHS has had in the past, HHS has never had a club that helps animals in need. Two passionate students, Shoshanna Piefer and Zoe Sax, juniors, along with their advisor, Ms. Brett Schulze, Social Studies, have answered the call of duty.

In the club’s first month of existence, they have accumulated to 20 members, and continue to grow in size. They have also begun striving towards their overall goal of helping local shelters in the Twin Cities.

“The first day they cut up blankets for a shelter, and we are working on donating those this week,” said Schulze.

The group’s other volunteer ideas include bagging food at Cub and donating the money they make to the Animal Humane Society, as well as setting up trivia at the Spirit Shop with boxes labeled “Pennies for Puppies” and “Quarters for Cats,” with all of the profits going directly to domestic animals in need.

Their cause is something that nearly everyone can get on board with, as household pets are commonplace for many students here at HHS.

“I’m a big animal lover and I volunteer at the Raptor Center every week,” Schulze said. “Anything that promotes the health and well being of animals I like to be apart of.”

Animal Impact meets every Tuesday at 7:15 a.m in Room W113.
