The students of the Oakbank Area School (OAS) received a visit from the Animal Welfare League recently in support of their appeal asking for food and bedding.
The OAS Krew, led by teacher, Annie Bainger, asked the school community through the school newsletter and letterbox drop, to donate unwanted blankets, old clothes and cat and dog food to the school in support of the Animal Welfare League’s ‘Winter Appeal’.
AWL Public Relations and Communications Officer, Brenda Champion says, “Every year the Animal Welfare League takes in over 20,000 lost and abandoned animals and they rely heavily on donations”.
“The generosity of the local community is crucial for the care of these animals.
We have lots of mouths to feed and animals to keep warm as winter sets in.
The donation of food, blankets and cash from the Oakbank Area School community is wonderful and will go a long way to help us help them.”
Leanne Page, AWL Education Officer, paid a visit to the Oakbank Area School and gave a presentation on the Animal Welfare League and responsible pet ownership.
The AWL Donation Drive is on now until June 19th.
Please give generously in your local area or visit www.animalwelfare.com.au and donate on line.
