Local students are decorating bulb after bulb this holiday season to help support their four legged friends.

Grover Cleveland Middle School art student David Dillender says he loves his dog Smokey so he’s glad to help out.

"We are making bulbs for the animal shelter," Dillender said.

The project is to raise money for the animal shelter during the Christmas season. Lynne Sprague a board member of the Muskingum County Animal Shelter says a lot of people donate to different organizations and sometimes the dogs get left out in the cold.
100% of the profits go to the animal shelter.
The bulbs will decorate tree throughout Zanesville like banks and other businesses.

"They can make a donation and then the person can take a bulb from the tree that they can take home and put on their tree as a thank you for them donating to help the animal shelter," Sprague said.

The junior high art students will be making over 1,500 bulbs.
