Little Lives Rescue is one of the first small animal rescues in the PNW and the only one in Tri-Cities Washington. They help find permanent loving homes for companion animals that have been rescued from abuse, neglect, or abandonment and to educate our community about proper small animal care and the importance of overpopulation prevention. The more people become aware of this rescue, the more the decrease in found/abandoned animals and a tremendous increase in owners surrenders.

There are a variety of different ways teachers and students could partner with the organization. This can include talking a field trip to volunteer one day at the shelter to gain information and create an experience the students will never forget. Another way involves the students learning about the organization and then making treats for each specific animal and donating those to the shelter.
