Thousand Oaks Elementary gave back this fall by helping out the Animal Defense League (ADL). As part of the Leader in Me initiative, first grade students at Thousand Oaks Elementary School participated in a community service project this fall. Students chose to collect donations during the month of October for the Animal Defense League . ADL’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for abandoned, neglected or abused dogs and cats by providing needed medical care, food, shelter, and safety with compassion and attention until they are adopted.
Thousand Oaks Elementary kicked off their community service event during an assembly where Rubble, the dog, and his owner, an ADL employee, discussed how and why the ADL operates.
Students collected much needed items from ADL’s wish list including toys, food, towels, blankets, newspapers and much more.
