The third grade students at Peachtree City Elementary School celebrate the 100th day of school each school year by collecting items to donate to a local charity. The animals at the Fayette County Humane Society were chosen to receive this year's donations.
98 third graders eagerly accepted over 500 donated items which will be used by the homeless animals in Fayette County.
As a non-kill society, the homeless dogs and cats are fostered out until they are adopted. Typically, the society will have about 500 animals adopted each year.
Brenda Hamrick of the Fayette County Humane Society explained prospective new foster parents will receive a home visit. "You really have to love animals and have the right home for them," Hamrick said. "All of the donations will be used at the foster homes."The Fayette County Humane Society shows animals every Sat at Petsmart in PTC and in Fayetteville.
