4th Graders Write Sweet and Honest Letters to Help Shelter Dogs

We here at The BarkPost see many different ways people raise awareness for shelter animals.  However, an idea from Ebb Valley Elementary teacher Tiffani Murphy may be the cutest one yet!

Murphy decided to use her compassion for animals with her fourth grade class and create a clever assignment – write a persuasive letter in the words of a homeless animal explaining why someone should adopt them.

The kids each chose a dog or cat on the Baltimore Humane Society website, bmorehumane.org.  In all, 37 letters were written, then sent to a no-kill shelter.  The letters were laminated and posted on the corresponding animal’s kennel.

As you probably expected, the letters are fantastic and adorable.  Let’s take a look at a few!

Now if those don’t inspire you and bring a ray of sunshine to your day, I don’t know what will!  Those are some great kiddos and high paws to Tiffani Murphy for creating this amazing assignment!
