RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) -The director of Richmond Animal Care and Control collaborated with a second grade teacher to make classwork fun for students all while helping pets find their forever homes.

When the RACC director brought adoptable pup Snow to St. Michael’s Episcopal School on Monday it wasn’t just so Snow could get some fun time with kids. Instead, the two visited the school to inspire the students of Mrs. Jones’ class to write a persuasive story from the perspective of a shelter pet waiting to be adopted.

The students wrote their stories and drew pictures of the pets they chose to compliment their writings.

The staff of RACC held a walk through on Saturday at the shelter with each animal’s own story and colorful artistic renderings of each pet attached to the front of their kennels.

According to RACC, their stories are very persuasive. Yosemite, an American pit bull terrier is quoted in his story saying, “I like the animal shelter, but you would be the best! If you’re looking for a pet please, please, please take me home.”

A senior female German Shepherd named Famous Amos, after the cookie brand, asks potential adopters, “Don’t you love my name?”

These stories and many more are posted to their adoption profiles on their website.
