Westside School’s kindergarten classes have been studying fabric in science. When we heard the Seattle Humane Society needed some fabric mats, we decided to team up for an adorable service project! The kids spent the last two weeks weaving snuffle mats designed to help eliminate boredom for the shelter dogs. Together we created ten mats for the dogs, and were fortunate to have some extra visitors come to campus when the Seattle Humane Society came to pick up the mats.

Zelda, a trained therapy dog, as well as several adoptable cats came to meet the students and interact for a fun filled afternoon. Kindergarten students had the chance to learn about safe interactions with animals, and how to approach an unfamiliar animal. The students loved getting to pet the animals, and see some of Zelda’s many talents.

Congratulations to the kindergarten classes and teaching team for doing something wonderful for the animals!
