In April, Weslaco Animal Care Services crew teamed up with Tracie Voss from Tracy's Paws Rescue to help educate children at Airport Elementary about responsible pet ownership.
It is vital to teach the younger generations on the importance of animal welfare.
The City of Weslaco recognized that the overpopulation of strays is something that needs to be changed through education and responsible pet ownership.
That day, Weslaco Animal Care Services made a promise to the kids to go back and take them a gift.
On May 12, Weslaco Animal Care Officer Aguilera and Officer Orellana returned to the school and gifted the students their very own Edward.
The children were excited to take home their very own Edward.
