PAWS club– Panther Animal Welfare Society– held its first meeting last week, and the turnout was more than Krista Konerman, president, ever expected. “More than 50 people came,” the junior said.
PAWS is the only animal related club at South and its goal is to coordinate with the Monroe County Animal Shelter to facilitate supply drives and student volunteering. For an upcoming meeting, Konerman discussed the possibility of making catnip and dog treats to give to the shelter.
“My goal this year is to establish the base of the club so it can continue when I leave,” Konerman said. Students 16 or over are eligible to volunteer for the shelter, and Konerman hopes to establish a regular schedule for club members.
