I would like to start off by saying THANK YOU, again, to all of Project R.E.A.C.H.'s wonderful supporters. We are comprised of foster families, shelter volunteers, rescuers, teachers education supporters, and animal advocates from all over. Each and every one of you is AMAZING! Some of you, I have not met yet, but I am overjoyed by your passion, your good will, and your desire to help animals in need.

Many of you have expressed interest in working with me to use your knowledge, talents, and skills to present to my students, in donating craft supplies and your time, and in sharing your reach by spreading our story. I am humbled by your kindness, and I am honored to be able to work with each of you. 

With that being said, Project R.E.A.C.H. is proud and so happy to announce our (first) official partnership with Salem County Humane Society. As Daretown School is part of Salem County Special Services School District, we wanted to make sure that our R.E.A.C.H. would have a positive local impact and we couldn't be more thrilled with the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with The Salem County Humane Society. 

Here's a little bit about The Salem County Humane Society, in their own words:
"The Salem County Humane Society is a no kill shelter for homeless dogs and cats, located in Carneys Point, New Jersey. As a no kill shelter, we work hard to place animals in loving homes, but for those dogs and cats who aren't able to attract a new family, they remain at the shelter permanently and they see all the volunteers as their family. 
We operate strictly by donations and fundraisers, not by any local, state, or federal government funds, and our staff is 100% volunteers. We do not perform animal control duties; each township within Salem County has its own animal control officer. 
All our animals at the shelter receive veterinary care including spaying and neutering. We never discriminate on the basis of health or age, and take in the abused, unwanted and abandoned companion animals that other human beings have forgotten. We hope people will become more aware of the plight of homeless animals as well as realizing the benefits of adopting an animal in need. We hope you will open your heart and home to one of these pets who is just waiting for the right person."

I am bursting at the seams with excitement! I hope that you will show support and love for this organization by visiting their webpage and by liking and sharing their Facebook pages.

Stay tuned. Great things are coming as we will continue to extend our R.E.A.C.H.!!
