Heartland Humane Society received a heartwarming donation from the confirmation class at St. John's Lutheran Church in Yankton. The girls worked hard to make warm fleece blankets and dipped doggie bones for the animals at the shelter.
Heartland Humane Society relies on donations from the community to care for the shelter animals. Groups like the St John's Confirmation Class can help with great projects like this. "The girls put in a lot of effort and were really creative with their donations," said Tasha Anderson, Executive Director at Heartland Humane Society. "The blankets will personalize each kennel and keep the animals warm, and the dipped bones be great for fundraisers like our holiday photos and Tails & Trails events. We are so happy to have their support!"
