For the past month, students of Primrose School at Lakewood Ranch have been learning about pets and what it takes to help them.

Through the school’s Precious Pets program, children collected more than 500 pet food items and supplies, which they delivered to for Honor Sanctuary Animal Rescue on Aug. 4.

Additionally, each class from the school virtually adopted a pet from Honor Sanctuary’s website as part of the project.

”The children get very excited and they truly believe this is their classroom pet,” Primrose owner Sharon Frank said. “The ‘virtual’ adoption gives the children a real hands-on experience and the ability to learn what it takes to have the responsibility of caring for a pet.”

The Precious Pets program is part of Primrose’s Balanced Learning curriculum.
