A charitable trip to "Furry Friends"

On Wednesday 10th November, the Social Enterprise Club departed the British School of Nanjing for a charitable trip to ‘Furry Friends’, a suburban animal shelter. The sanctuary was solely run and funded by two caring Canadian expats who were dedicated to finding, protecting and rehabilitating deprived cats and dogs in a secure and loving environment. Due to the dutiful actions of the BSN Social Enterprise members, the shelter will receive full support and extra donations in order to increase the funding for those animals in need. 

Once the SEC students arrived, they were respectfully greeted and welcomed into the establishment by Susanne, one of the originators of the sanctuary. Afterwards, the students were once again greeted, but this time, by the dozens of puppies and dogs and kittens, who were immediately excited to have additional human contact. There was a total of 22 dogs including; golden retrievers, German shepherds, chihuahuas among other mixed breeds. Other than dogs, the shelter consisted of a variety of kittens which were kept separated from the other pets. The students engaged in supportive activities such as animal training and petting to allow the animals to consistently feel respected and cared for. Furthermore, painting and designing were other key proceedings that Social Enterprise engaged in to help create beds for the puppies made from tyres and comfy bedding.  

The Social Enterprise Club remains excited to visit the animals again and looks forward to helping ‘Furry Friends’ develop into a larger and improved animal sanctuary. It is certainly a worthwhile charity and brings much joy to the students and to the staff.
