ROP class helping Valley Humane Society

by Jeb Bing

Classmates in Amador Valley High's pet-focused ROP program are giving the Valley Humane Society much needed help as the Pleasanton-based organization works to complete its nearly $1 million new facility on Nevada Street. Still short of funds, VHS has turned to ROP teacher Laurie Andrews and the 24 students in her special marketing section for promotional advice and membership drive ideas. With continued strong community response, Lori Rice, chairwoman of the VHS board, hopes opening day can come this summer. The ROP class already has proposed water bottles, coffee mugs and T-shirts with dog and cat drawings as gifts to those who contribute. Customized sections of tile, which contributors can use to remember their furry four-legged pet with dates of significance and even a sketch etched in, are also part of the money-raising effort under way.
