of homeless animals.
The Compassion in Action Project, which promotes kindness to animals and adoptions of homeless animals, includes 40 colorful posters, hand drawn by third grade students and special education students at Rock Creek School. Each of the posters depicts the strong bond between children and animals.
County Animal Services Program Manager Michael Winters stated, “I was deeply taken by the love and compassion expressed in the drawings. When you teach kindness to animals, you help pave the way to a better future for all living beings.”
The art project, organized by A New Hope Animal Foundation and Rock Creek School volunteer Audrey Reighley, provides an excellent community service project by grade school children.
Principal Suzanne Flint said, "Rock Creek School has received so much support from many individuals, groups, and organizations. Having some of our students create beautiful posters that encourage people to adopt homeless pets was a wonderful way for them to give back to our community. They are very proud of their artwork, and hope that everyone who sees the posters will be inspired to take a new pet home!"
The Compassion in Action posters will be on display from Monday, June 18 until Monday, July 2 at the Placer County animal shelter in North Auburn and will then be moved to the Placer County Administrative Center at the Domes, 175 Fulweiler Avenue, Auburn.
