Blake Spears won the FoCCAAS essay contest for Colleton Prep’s fourth grade. Sixteen students were presented certificates in Mrs. Padgett’s fourth grade class. Reggie McNeil, director of the animal shelter, spoke to the class. Steve Cinnader and his therapy dogs, Moja and Lucky Blue, attended and he told the class about the jobs his dogs do. Speuter, the CACE Program mascot, also brought her foster dog Chloe to the program.
Blake’s essay follows:
“I have two puppies Clair and Gus. Gus is a boy. Claire is a girl. They spend lots of time together so it’s important that we get them spayed or neutered. It’s important to get your dog/cat fixed or there will be overpopulation. Colleton County is working hard to lessen overpopulation. Also, if Claire has puppies I’ll have no sleep (zzz) what so ever. If I win, I’ll fix Gus so we won’t have unexpected pups like Snowball.”
(Note: Snowball was a pregnant homeless dog taken to the shelter to be adopted – the children were told about her journey.)
