Honor students help out furry friends

Posted: Updated:
MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - Over at Lee Junior High, some students put in some community service hours, to help out their furry friends.

On Saturday, Lee Junior High Honor Society Students hosted an off-site adoption day for Paws and the Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter.

For this school year, the honor students have designated these organizations for their community service projects.

The students have also taken tours of the shelter and helped out with other off site adoption days.

"There is such an abundance of animals that need homes in Ouachita parish. The Ouachita Parish Animal Shelter and PAWS relies on volunteers and donations of the community,” Laurie Ratcliff, a teacher at Lee Junior High School, said

To help out, several business donated items for a raffle and all proceeds will go to Paws and the Ouachita Animal Shelter.
