ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- GST BOCES students were able to bring some furry friends to class, and for a good cause!
It's all a part of the school's paw print ornament fundraiser.
For ten-dollars, a pet's paw print was cast into a Christmas ornament.
All of the ornaments will be painted and decorated by the school's Animal Science students.
The fee also included a bag of homemade dog treats.
The the Animal Science department held the fundraiser to raise money for a local animal shelter.
"It's to make the people happy," said BOCES Animal Science Instructor, Rusty Hess. "We want to do a community service that's something that might be unique that they don't get anywhere else and of course it helps to support the programs here at BOCES."
All of the ornaments will be available for pick-up two weeks before the holidays.
