MERKEL, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) – A group of students from Merkel Middle School is making dog blankets.
According to a Facebook post, one of the Merkel’s Middle School House groups, Mr. Fratto’s ALMONDS (Awesome Learning Merkelite Optimistic Noble Determined Students) is making dog blankets.
“It kind of makes me feel like so sad because they don’t have a home and other animals do,” Merkel sixth grader Destinie Gutierrez said.
“I’m an animal lover. I really like animals and I don’t like seeing animals that are abused or on the streets by themselves,” Merkel sixth grader Wendy Hansen said.
The group made the blankets to give to the Taylor Jones Humane Society.
“Oh we couldn’t thank them enough. That was so kind of them and just showing that they have hearts and they are the future of the Humane society,” Taylor Jones Humane Society Vice President Melissa O’Neill said.
Among the other groups are Mrs. Simpson’s House of Simpson, and Mrs. Fikes and Mrs. Munoz STAR (Students That Act Responsibly), who did different positive activities.
