Earth Day festivities

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

Preschool students pet the greyhound dogs that came to visit the Sikeston Kindergarten Center. Three dogs, part of Greyhound Pets of America, visited as part of the school's Earth Day festivities. "This is about taking care of animals and the Earth -- giving something that needs a home a good home and a safe place to live," said teacher Kim Amsden, who coordinated the visit. The Greyhound Pets of America group works to have the dogs adopted once they are taken off the track in Memphis, Tenn.
