Ethics for Children – Service Day

Ethics for Children – Service Day

The November Ethics for Children Service Day was in service of the animals. We made toys, treats, and did drawings of  animals in the NYC ACC shelter. The catnip dumplings, dog tug toys, and timothy treats for the bunnies and guinea pigs will help the animals to deal with the inevitable stress of the shelter environment. A highlight of the day were the kittens that EfC participant Saskia is fostering. The pictures were also donated to the shelter so that they could be posted with the animals profile, drawing attention to them with potential adopters. These artworks can be viewed on the ACC website as long as the animal is still at the shelter.

EFC student fostering a puppy!

Our Ethics for Children student Westley Miller shared some exciting news this summer: His family is fostering a puppy! It has been really special hearing about his experience, so we asked him to share about it for our blog.

We are currently fostering a puppy. Fostering is kind of like adopting, except it is for a little bit, until someone
else wants it. The puppy’s name is Mae.
She was in the wild for a month while her siblings were in a shelter. There is a rescue in Dutchess County that
takes dogs from high-kill shelters in the south; it rescued Mae and her siblings, and we fostered Mae. All of
them had severe non-contagious mange.

Two days after being rescued from the shelter, one of her siblings died of dehydration and the other was
discovered to be a boy (the bad shelter thought they were all girls): Mae was doing better in the wild than her
siblings in the shelter. Her other sibling took longer to recover in his foster home than Mae did, and he is doing
great now and has been adopted. How did the “shelter” mistake him for a girl?
Mae has almost completely recovered from her mange (so has her brother), and I like having her in the house.
She is very annoying sometimes, but she is a very sweet puppy. She is nice to everything, she wants to play
with the cats and the goats, but the cats and goats don’t like her. Whenever anyone comes home, she is very
happy to see them, she wiggles around and jumps on them. We are trying to teach her not to jump on us.

Mae is doing very well with training, she does sometimes have accidents in the house when she gets excited,
but other than that she is doing well. Dad and I take her for walks.
