National Bulldog Day Donation Drive Benefits FurKid Rescue
Donations collected for FurKid Rescue.

In honor of our new school mascot and National Bulldog Day on April 21, all four Shady Side Academy campuses held a donation drive for FurKid Rescue, a foster-based animal rescue nonprofit organization based in Pittsburgh, during the week of April 19-23.

On Wednesday, April 28, National Bulldog Day Committee leaders Lindsay Kovach and Nate Verbanets delivered the donations to FurKid Rescue, which included 15 crates, 26 beds, 37 bags of pet food and treats, more than 200 toys and so much more.

FurKid was ecstatic to receive the donations, and the toys were immediately put to good use by the adoptable animals at FurKid. Thank you to everyone that donated!
