The Animal Welfare Club has been one of the many accomplished clubs at Pelham Memorial High School for several years, making a difference in the high school community and beyond. Recently, they held a fundraiser outside of the auditorium where they sold bracelets for $3 each or $5 for two.

The bracelets were teal and had “PMHS Animal Welfare” with two paw prints engraved on them. People received a piece of candy or a sticker with every purchase and donation. They raised over $500 and donated over $402.62 of the profits to the Mount Vernon Animal Shelter to go towards supplies and care for the sheltered animals in need.

“Over the past few years, we have had trouble coordinating fundraisers and events, so it was nice to finally do something,” said junior Matt Michailoff, co-president of the club. “It was great to see the students of PMHS eager to support such a great cause.”
This was all made possible by their staff advisor, Ms. Michaud, and all of the various club leaders and volunteers who coordinated and worked at the table.

“I am very proud of the club’s accomplishments and the school community’s commitment towards raising awareness about the safety of sheltered animals and supporting a local cause,” said Michailoff.
