Phi Theta Kappa students make toys for homeless dogs

May 10, 2022

UA-PTC's Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) students wanted to focus their spring service project that helped dogs and do something fun to help get relaxed before finals. On Friday, April 29, PTK students and advisors hosted a two-hour event in the Center for Humanities and Arts (CHARTS) lobby at the Main Campus making dog toys with gently used shirts that the students collected during the semester with the end result being a good thing for dogs and humans.

“This was such a fun and collaborative event for students and my fellow faculty! It was relaxing and rewarding,” said Kate Evans, Chair of Co-Curricular Assessment. Echoing this sentiment was most certainly the students who left saying how much fun they had and how they felt ready to conquer their final exams.

PTK students left the event feeling proud of what they accomplished and feeling less stressed too. PTK students are already making plans to repeat this event in the fall.

“I’m so proud of the students, and I love that we combined recycling/reusing into this spring service project. I think the dogs are really going to enjoy playing with their new toys,” said Jessica Wise, PTK Chapter Advisor.

All dog toys made during the event will be donated to the Sherwood Humane Animal Shelter in Sherwood.
