for a cause
Every year the Ocean City Humane Society rescues dozens of animals who have been neglected or abandoned. The society takes good care of them and tries to find them a loving home. While they are waiting to be adopted, the animals live at the humane society building, located near the soccer fields on Tennessee Avenue. The cats who live there love to play with toys. This year the students of the 3rd grade OC LIFE 21 Club are ready to Create for a Cause! Students will design cat toys using computer assisted design and a 3-D Printer that will be donated to the cats at the OC Humane Society.
