Animal Science students donated to Suruluna

CTE students who participate in SkillsUSA and attend the CTE Animal Science class recently hosted a donation drive to benefit Suruluna Animal Rescue, a local sanctuary dedicated to rescuing pit bull type dogs.  Dottsie Perez, one of Suruluna's volunteers, visited the students to educate them on the history of this often misunderstood type of dog, as well as what it means to rescue and how their sanctuary came to be.  Dottsie brought along Moonshine (pictured), one of the dogs currently living at Suruluna.
