Alex Harrison from the SPCA of Luzerne County brought the dog, Ryder, to visit the children at Trinity Learning Center, Dallas. Harrison taught the children about the humane treatment of man’s best friend. The children collected and donated food and other supplies to the shelter to help support the animals. More than 80 children were invited to participate in the project, which they have been doing for 10 years. Some of the participants, from left, first row, are MacKenzie Morreale, Anna Vincelli and Teagan Orrson. Second row: Josh Phillips, Rebecca Zuranski, Sydney Banks, Mayah Kulinovsky and Erin Duffy. Third row: Julian Wallace, Emma Fostock, Zachary Hodakowski, Harrison holding Ryder, Isabella Evans and Molly Walsh.
