The group presented a check to Shelter Board members Bette Bertram and Sandy Grimes who visited the class with Fred, Bertram's adopted dog.
Fred was left chained to the gate of the Humane Shelter after it was closed earlier this year. He was malnourished, had mange and was in poor health.
Bertram adopted him, nursed him back to health and brought him with her to pick up the check from the second grade class.
"I wanted the kids to see what we do at the shelter and see the result of their donations," said Bertram.
Second grader Lauren Harper had the winning ticket for the quilt that she describes as "kind of log cabiney."
"I was really surprised when I won," she said smiling.
Smedley's class shares time with Vicki Montgomery's second grade class. They also raffled off a quilt to raise money for the Ronald McDonald House. Myraze Wilkinson from Montgomery's class won that quilt.
"I think it's great that kids this young are learning what their donations can do," said Bertram.
During his visit, Fred was content to be petted and loved on by the students. He left the classroom the same way he entered it--wagging his tail.
