There were cuddles to be had and scratches to be given on Saturday, December 15 as AMR Dance Studio brought in donations to the Drumheller Humane Society.

The group brought in multiple boxes of kitty litter, food and treats for the animals.humane1Cat products donated by AMR Dance Studio

"It went really well. It all started with our annual 'Parent Watch' week at the studio. And I asked all the families to bring an item for the Humane Society as admission for coming into the studio," explained Owner of AMR Dance Studio Alison Rutz. "I want to say a huge thank you for everyone who pitched in because I feel we made a difference. I was really excited about the amount we collected, and we just hope it helps finish their year on a good note."

About a dance dozen students came to help deliver the food, as well as learn about the day to day operations of the Humane Society and how they help animals in need.

"They loved it. They all had a hard time leaving. Not a lot of them knew what the Humane society is and what kind of work they do, so it is really fun to take a couple of kids over there. They get a chance to play with the animals and learn how they can help out even more than bringing in an item for donation." continued Rutz.

Rutz goes on to say that this partnership between AMR Dance Studio and the Human Society was a match made in heaven.

"There was a lot of nice memories made, lots of smiles. It felt really good to do a good deed. It was really win-win for everyone by teaching them about the animals while helping out at the same time," concluded Rutz.
