North Carolina Students say Thanks to Ft. Bragg K-9's and Handlers

Irwin Intermediate School present thank you cards to the Ft. Bragg K-9's and Handlers!

During 3rd Annual North Carolina Week for the Animals which transpired May 1-9, 2010 Irwin Intermediate School made colorful cards for the Ft. Bragg soldiers and working K-9's. These sweet cards (as only young ones can create) were a way for the school to show their appreciation for the sacrifice and courage the soldiers and dogs give to our country.

Stacey Crawford, 6th Grade Teacher at Irwin Intermediate School in Fort Bragg, NC said "It was fantastic! Thank you for allowing our students to be a part of this special NC Week for Animals." Irwin Intermediate Teacher Deborah Popour also expressed her sincere gratitude.

The students were visited by two handlers from Ft. Bragg ...Sergeant Webster and Staff Sergeant Wade and of course coming along was one of the awesome working K-9's, Barron. After the visit, Sgt. Webster said, "It was great. It means a lot to us to receive the cards from the students. We don't normally on our daily business receive this feedback, and it really makes us know that we are appreciated."

A big thank you to Dr. Tim Howle, principal of Irwin Intermediate School and teachers who helped to coordinate this activity. Thanks to the students for creating the beautiful cards and taking the pictures.

This just serves to remind us all that when we say thank you it can changes lives. A salute to all our courageous troops wherever they are. Animal World USA also extends our gratitude and say "We love you!"
