Earlier this week, Mrs. Krueger's third-grade class at Country Club Elementary in San Ramon had a visit from two furry guests. The four-legged canine and feline guests from the East Bay SPCA came to wish students on Feb.10th a happy Valentine's Day and thank the class for their donation to the organization.

Each class that raises a minimum of $100 in donations gets a visit from an East Bay SPCA educator and a dog and cat to "meet and greet" students, as well as an opportunity to make and decorate a valentine for one of the pets.

Humane Educator Joelle Cook thanked the class and explained how the $141.40 the class raised can help animals at the shelter by providing them with food, medicine, and shelter.

"I thank you and your families for raising money for our shelter animals so that they can all have valentines," Cook said.

Cook explained how the East Bay SPCA cares for the animals at the shelter while staff actively helps find them "forever homes". Last year, the East Bay SPCA found loving homes for more than 2,600 dogs, cats, kittens and puppies.

As part of the East Bay SPCA's “Drive to Thrive” Valentine program, the East Bay SPCA has been visiting 25 local classrooms in Dublin, Pleasanton and Oakland with supplies to make Valentines (and shelter animals) in tow. The presentations are to children in second grade through fifth grade. Each year, the East Bay SPCA receives several thousand dollars in donations from the classrooms.
