Building Character Through Animal Care


Meet Tiger. Our class adopted him from Tony LaRussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF). He’s a one year old neutered male tiger tabby cat. Students will be taking turns caring for Tiger in the classroom and tracking his experiences in a journal.


ARF visited my class for their All-Stars Program this week. This two day program focused on the character traits of responsibility, respect, and compassion while teaching about animal care. The class also got to meet a therapy dog named Lucy.

We will be visiting ARF in a couple of weeks to tour their facility, meet new animals, and learn more about animal care.
