Cardinal Newman Helps Animal Rescue

Students gather around a puppy provided for the fundraiser.

The Cardinal Newman High School National Honor Society recently hosted Puppy Day to benefit Justin Bartlett Animal Rescue.

The event was a service opportunity idea from Executive Board Member Madison Borsellino. Cardinal Newman’s National Honor Society partnered with Justin Bartlett, a local organization that has a 100 percent volunteer staff and is dedicated to saving pregnant and nursing animals, as well as orphaned puppies/kittens, homeless adult pets and any unwanted animal, whether sick or healthy.

Justin Bartlett provided seven puppies for the fundraiser, and students could play with the puppies for a $5 donation to Justin Bartlett. The event was a great success and raised $910 — $610 worth of donations and a $300 adoption fee for the organization.
