    Interested in tracking your volunteer hours? Should you wish to have a form to track volunteer hours for your personal record you may use the Experience Tracker available on SchooLinks (see image below). Log on to SchooLinks ⇒ School ⇒ Experience Tracking.

    Luck of the Irish Rescue
    Luck of the Irish Rescue is a non-profit 501c3 animal rescue committed to the rescue, protection, and care for animals including cats, dogs, horses, rabbits, and more. Luck of the Irish is completely donation based and staffed entirely by volunteers. The animals we rescue come from abusive, neglectful homes, and shelters where they are in line to be euthanized. Animals are being abandoned and filling shelters to be killed at record levels. This crisis is the worst it’s ever been. Luck of the Irish helps to clear animals from kill shelters, provide medical care, and homes for them at their sanctuary until they are adopted. Luck of the Irish works with Pilots N Paws to rescue animals from all over. They have taken in over 40 dogs just from hurricane Ian alone. Any help is wonderful. There are several ways to donate, including a list of items on their website, volunteering at adoption events, and fostering.  www.luckirishrescue.org Email -  info@luckirishrescue.org Phone -  504-513-3250
