ODESSA, Texas (Nexstar) – As part of a Student Council service project, approximately 40 third, fourth, and fifth grade students from the University of Texas Permian Basin STEM Institute created the transporters pets to benefit the Odessa Animal Shelter. The Odessa Police Department said the carriers would be used for the animals on their way back to their permanent homes.
“I would say we are giving animals a slightly safer way to get home,” said student Ethan Griffin.
A few shelter dogs even stopped by the school on Thursday to thank the students for their hard work and care.
“It’s great that we can help them. We get to decorate; we have to do everything in our power to help,” said student Jasmine Martinez.
OPD says if you’re looking for a new pet for your family, the Odessa Animal Shelter has plenty of dogs and cats available to adopt. And now, thanks to these students, you can bring them home in style.
