The members of Mount Vernon’s National Honor Society is hosting a rescue-pet supplies drive benefitting FurKids, Georgia’s largest animal rescue, no-kill shelter, and sanctuary.

On any given day, there are about 1,600 dogs and cats in Furkids’ care and they are in constant need of supplies. As a group, we aim to help replenish their resources. Check the FurKids website for a current list of needs.

To help raise awareness, FurKids will bring several shelter dogs to afternoon carpool on the Upper Campus on Wednesday, April 24. 

NHS officers will be collecting supplies at the front desk on both campuses through Wednesday, May 1. Please consider making a donation to help a rescue animal in-need. 

Senior NHS member Nina Toller shares, “There is nothing like the unconditional love of a pet, especially from one that has been abandoned or has suffered in the past, which is why MV’s National Honor Society has decided to partner with FurKids for its end-of-the-year service event. The National Honor Society values service as one of its four pillars, as members uphold high standards of morality, reliability, and respect for others. In a call to fulfill this duty, NHS is collecting shelter items now through next Wednesday (May 1) to benefit the thousands of abandoned animals the FurKids organization takes in each year.”
