MOSELLE, MS (WDAM) - Some students and teachers at Moselle Elementary School hit the cold asphalt Saturday morning to help some homeless pets.  A first-ever Bulldog Dash was a 5k run and two-mile walk to assist Laurel's Animal Rescue League. 

It was the idea of the school's Junior Beta Club. 

It not only raised some much-needed cash, but also brought in some supplies for the animal shelter.   

"(Participants) brought donations of dog food and canned dog food and some cleaning supplies and newspapers and blankets to donate to the Animal Rescue League as well," said Tiffany Sanford, Beta Club sponsor for Moselle Elementary School.   

"We appreciate so much the support from the community," said Patti Smith, board president for the Animal Rescue League. "We love to get our dogs out and let them actually get out and socialize with people.  That helps them get adopted," she said.  

And the shelter did bring a few homeless puppies to the event.

    Though she stands at just 4-foot-10, Aimee Durn is a force for the Jones County Junior College women's soccer club. The short freshman from England is a big reason the Lady Bobcats are 5-0-1. "They say big things come in small packages and that's very true for Aimee," said tenth-year JCJC women's soccer coach Dolores Deasley.
