Cause 4 Paws raises awareness for animals

Barbara Roman

For seven years at South, Cause 4 Paws has been a place for students to get involved in community-based projects in connection with Heartland Animal Shelter, said Barbara Roman, Instructional Assistant for Special Education.

Cause 4 Paws holds board meetings on the first Tuesday of every month, with an average of 25 to 30 consistent members in the club, Roman said. There is an educational component to the club with the main goal being to benefit shelters,

Whether that is through making products for the shelters or through informative presentations on topics such as animal cruelty or the importance of adopting from a rescue shelter, Roman said. 

Freshman Ryan Hanley, Cause 4 Paws member, said the club’s goals are as follows: help as many animals as possible have a safe environment to live in

“We as a club want to help as many animals as possible and try to make safe environments for them,” Hanley said.

In order to accomplish these goals, Cause 4 Paws supports the idea of taking care of animals and doing their best to help the animals. It is important to adopt animals from a rescue shelter.

Junior Sophia Abrahams, Cause 4 Paws President, shares what she thinks is the most important reason to adopt animals. 

“Not only are you saving the animal you adopt, you are making space for a new one,” Abrahams said.

Freshman Lexi Hibbard said in their club meetings which board members attend as well, which she attends monthly like all the members, they have made posters to inform people and hopefully promote adoption and put a stop to animal cruelty. Hibbard said. 

Cause 4 Paws tries to make a difference and help animals have a better life. Roman said. The club makes dog treats, blankets, and toys to give to the dogs at shelters, Abrahams states. 

“The larger goal of the club is to help animals in any way we can: donating to shelters, spreading awareness, etc,” Abrahams said.
