Founded in 2019 by Skyler Nahouray, a New West Charter high school student, the New West Charter Humane Society chapter now has 75 student members and is making a difference in the lives of animals in the Southland. Their goal is to improve the lives of animals in shelters, educate others about animals and foster their love of animals. This Sunday, Inside SoCal was there to capture their $14,000 in-kind donation to the spcaLA Long Beach shelter. Thanks to the students pounding the pavement and the generosity of local businesses like Village Pet Supply, The Urban Pet and My Pets Place, they were able to procure food, treats, toys, beds and more for the shelter.
