Sabrina Hester, sixth-grade language arts teacher at Sleeping Giant Middle School, squeezes a puppy named Zion from the Stafford Animal Shelter in the front office of the school as volunteer Julie Serafin holds up the "Hounded" picture frame on Thursday morning. The event, called "Hound A Friend" is a fundraising activity for Park High School's "Senior All Night Party." People donate by paying to send a puppy for a visit to anyone of their choice in town.
