Students from Leesburg Elementary School’s Paws and Claws Club will be selling handmade animal toys and treats Saturday, May 28, at the Exeter Bazaar in Leesburg. The event was rescheduled from May 21 due to rain.
The group, launched by second grader Rowan Gillespie, is made up of students looking to put their love for animals into action. Proceeds will go to two local animal welfare nonprofit organizations: Loudoun Community Cats Coalition for cats and Save the Tails.
They will sell dog biscuits, cat treats, catnip seedlings and pet toys at the bazaar from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Exeter clubhouse, 350 Plaza Street in Leesburg. The group has also planned a puppy “kissing booth” from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, call 301-758-1682.
