FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) -- Nine students from a special ed/functional skills class at Harris Elementary raised $136 by saving their pocket change for Fort Wayne Animal Care & Control.

The students have been saving their dimes, nickles and quarters on a daily basis since January to be able to help local animals. Their teacher, Kathy McComb along with two aides help the students raise the funds and delivered the check to Fort Wayne Animal Care and Control on Thursday during a class field trip.

McComb chooses a service project for her class every year. This years group of third-, fourth- and fifth-graders watched a canine behavioral video and got to tour the facility before an employee allowed them to interact with two shelter puppies.
