New animal alliance club focuses on supporting sheltered animals
Quinn Grabowski ’25

The Animal Alliance Club is a new club committed to making a meaningful impact on the community by helping dogs and cats in animal shelters. Co-founded by Grace Campbell and Quinn Grabowski both ’25 and advised by Science Teacher Claire Hart, the goal of the club is to support animals in shelters, specifically dogs and cats, and to spread awareness about the challenges they face.

“The (Animal Aliance) club is very student-driven, so when I was asked to be their advisor, I was more than happy to support them with the club,” Hart said.

Campbell and Grabowski run the club every other week at 7:30 a.m. on Thursdays in room S258, Hart’s classroom.

“Most of our meetings consist of making crafts to donate to shelters or planning bake sales to raise money,” Grabowski said.

The club is driven by a shared passion for animals.

“The co-founder Grace Campbell and I both have pets that we really care about, and (we) just really love animals, and we noticed there wasn’t a club at South dedicated to helping them,” Grabowski said.

Through a combination of education, activities, crafts and field trips, they hope to raise awareness about the challenges animals in shelters face.

“We try to help as much as we can by making crafts and raising money, but I would inspire and encourage everyone to see how they can help local animals,” Grabowski said. “We also aim to achieve longevity as a club at South by recruiting underclassmen to join so, when (Campbell and I) graduate, our efforts can continue.”

With a mission centered on promoting animal welfare and education, the club has become a beacon of compassion. The club has wasted no time in making its mark, organizing bake sales and spreading awareness. Lily Frey ’26 has been a member from the start. An animal lover, she said she likes being able to help and support animals in need.

“I enjoy getting the chance to help animals, and I’m super excited to volunteer and spend time with them soon for our field trip,” Frey said.
