Second graders assist RACC pets in telling their tales so that they might find a forever home.

WWBT The director of Richmond Animal Care and Control teamed up with a second-grade teacher to make classwork more enjoyable for pupils while also assisting pets in finding their forever homes.
On Monday, the RACC director brought adoptable puppy Snow to St. Michael's Episcopal School for more than just some play time with the students. Instead, they came to Mrs. Jones' class to encourage pupils to create a convincing tale from the perspective of a shelter pet waiting to be adopted.
The pupils wrote their stories and illustrated them with drawings of the pets they chose to go along with them.
RACC's employees organized a walkthrough of the shelter on Saturday, with each animal's personal story and bright artistic renditions of each critter pinned to the front of their kennels.
Their stories, according to RACC, are quite persuasive. In his story, Yosemite, an American pit bull terrier, is quoted as stating, I enjoy the animal shelter, but you'd be the best! Please, please, please take me home if you're seeking for a pet.
Don't you enjoy my name? a senior female German Shepherd named Famous Amos, after the cookie company, asks potential adopters.
These and other adoption tales can be found on their website's adoption profiles.
RACC's adoptable pets can be found online, or you can pay them a visit at 1600 Chamberlayne Ave.
