St. Maria Goretti High School announced its People for Animal Welfare Society recently held a fundraiser to help animals affected by Hurricane Sandy. 

The club sponsored a “Wear Orange” out-of-uniform day in honor of the official color of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. Students could pay $5 to be out of uniform for the day and the money collected went toward the Hurricane Sandy animalrelief effort.

The club also received donations for the relief fund from three local veterinarians: Drs. Tracy Barlup, Phil Palmer and Roger Horst.

Through this partnership, the club was able to donate $750 to the Wag On Inn Rescue in Oakhurst, N.J. The Wag On Inn has been dedicated to helping care for animals affected by the storm and was identified by a Goretti alum who lives near the Oakhurst area.

The club’s mission is to help animals in any way possible. The club participates in service projects geared toward animal care and holds pet-supply collections throughout the year.
