Guam – Guam Animals In Need was one of the many invitees to the P.C. Lujan Elementary Career Day.
The children were very excited about Hlief, the four-legged guest brought by Animal Caregiver Charissa Rausmann. Rausmann explained the five most important things that every pet requires, includes food, water, shelter, exercise, and love. She also explained the shelter is open every single day, even on Christmas, because the Animal Caregivers must ensure the animals at the shelter receive the five requirements every day.
“I’m grateful for the opportunity to speak at P.C. Lujan Elementary today. GAIN is always looking for new ways to reach out to our community but, speaking to children is one of the most rewarding of all. The children get so excited and they love to learn about ways to keep their own pets happy.”
GAIN is responsible for running the animal shelter in Yigo for the Government of Guam. They accept unwanted and injured animals from the public and whenever possible, rehabilitate the animals and find new, responsible owners to open their homes and adopt the pets. GAIN relies on the generosity of the Guam community to fund their educational outreach, animal sterilization programs, and veterinary costs.
