Humane Society continues to care for animals

By Kayla Gayle, Student Life Editor

Even while in a pandemic, the Humane Society is dedicated to accomplishing its goals. The club’s purpose is to care for animals that are in need.

“In this club, it is our responsibility to not only raise money but raise awareness for our special furry friends,” Ella Russo, the club’s president, said during the first meeting of the year.

Humane Society partakes in many activities to help animals: fundraising for charities, donating to shelters and volunteering at events. It is even currently planning a virtual pet costume contest for Halloween. The club intends to continue doing all of these and new projects while practicing social distancing.

“With these new circumstances, we plan to still help the animals as much as possible while keeping (ourselves) safe at the same time,” Russo said.

However, the pandemic has caused disruption to the club’s original plans.

“One change we have is that we haven’t been able to hold a fundraiser yet, because of school being virtual,” Russo said.

Despite this setback, the club plans to hold a virtual fundraiser in the near future “in order to still do our part,” said Russo.

To join the Humane Society, students should follow its Instagram (@pbhshumane_society) and join the GroupMe by asking for the link through its DMs. The club meets every other Thursday at 4 p.m.

“I’m very optimistic for the future once we are able to return face to face,” Russo said.
