Van Gogh - March 4



Mr. Vinnie Van Gogh is feeling quite grateful these days. He is overwhelmed by the showing of love and support for him from everyone, while he recovers from the abuse that he endured. He was absolutely overjoyed a couple of days ago, when he heard about what the students at Clara B. Worth School in Bayville had done for him, and the other deserving animals at Popcorn Park.

Our Animal Control Officer Maria Cymansky visits local schools from time to time to teach the importance of showing kindness to animals, spaying and neutering your pets, and adopting your pet, as opposed to purchasing a pet. On a recent visit to this school elementary school, Maria was overwhelmed with the amount of donations that the students had collected for our animals at Popcorn Park, and was handed a stack of 'Get Well' cards that the students had made for our boy Vinnie.

Their teacher has been following Vinnie's progress on our Facebook page and told her students what had happened to this young pup, without going into too many of the graphic details. The students were so moved by this story, and wanted to do something to help Vinnie, and all of the other animals like him. They loaded Maria's van full of dog and cat food, treats, toys, blankets, beds, cleaning supplies, and so much more. Their handmade cards were so thoughtful, and many of our staff were moved to tears while we read the heartfelt thoughts that these 5, 6, and 7 year olds wrote out to Vinnie. Some drew pictures of him while others simply said, "We love you Vinnie". Every single one of these cards are now hung proudly in Vinnie's room where he can enjoy them every day, and they truly will help him "get well soon".

Thank you so much to these thoughtful students and their teachers, for thinking of our Popcorn Park residents and Vinnie. We truly appreciate everything that you've collected for us and we can tell you that all of it is being put to good use. Keep up the great work kids, and please spread the word to be kind to animals. And to the parents and teachers, please keep teaching the humane way .. it starts with the children!

Would you or your class or organization like to help our shelter and refuge residents but don't know what to get? Check out our Wish List and know that we are always very grateful for anything you choose to donate.
