 Jillian Urbach and Wilson Loucks Present Cat Posts to Animal Shelter

Friday Harbor High School Students, Jillian Urbach and Wilson Loucks chose The Animal Protection Society of Friday Harbor as the recipient of their community project this year.  After a great deal of deliberation, they decided to make cat scratching posts; something the shelter was desperately in need of. To raise funds for the project Jillian and Wilson had a do-it-yourself dog wash at the animal shelter in early November.  With the funds raised they purchased the supplies needed to build the scratching posts and set about learning how to construct them.  As you can see by the photo, they caught on quickly and presented the animal shelter with seven beautiful posts – destined to provide hours of claw-sharpening fun for shelter cats for a long time to come.
