An Abandoned Dog Needed Surgery To Live, So These Hero Fourth Graders Raised $642
For a group of fourth graders, $600 can buy them just about anything they can dream up.Yet rather than use the money for a fun adventure or a pricey toy, these fourth graders decided to help out an animal in need.
When fourth-grade students Bilal, Krish, and Leo from the Tibbals Elementary School found out that a beagle mix who was covered in cuts, bruises, and was suffering from a broken leg had been rescued by a local animal shelter, they came together to figure out some way they could help the hurt pup before it was too late.
When Zoe was found, she was suffering from numerous injuries, but the worst was a broken leg which needed to be operated on immediately, or else the leg would have to be amputated. Despite her pain, Zoe constantly kissed and nuzzled her caregivers.
After finding out about Zoe’s situation, three classmates came together and decided to donate all of the profits, which amounted to $642, from their small business selling pencils, lead, erasers, and a remote control car to other students at school. Thanks to their generous donations, Zoe was able to get the surgery she needed to save her leg and is now recovering with a loving foster family until she is well enough to be adopted. Whilst she was recovering she was still able to do all of the activities a dog is able to do, like going outside and going to the local fields and parks, and get all the loving and doggy treats she deserved. In the donation, she was provided with a little dog carrier (which this page shows you) so she could go out and still be herself even during the recovery she dearly needed. The sooner she recovers the better, and the sooner she’ll find a new home.
