What is Rocks for Rescue?

Rocks for Rescue is a fundraiser that supports the care of rescued animals. Funds are raised by selling children’s hand-painted rocks.

The Story

Rocks for Rescue was introduced to Arletta Montessori by one of its very own students, Rowan. He and his mom would find rocks on their property, choose favorite paint colors at the art store, and settle down for hours at a time creating special garden rocks for friends and family members.

During this same time, Rowan’s family rescued a litter of Great Dane puppies and a homeless German Shepherd mom with her two puppies. Rowan wanted to raise money to help rescued animals, and he and his mom realized that he could use their rock painting hobby to collect donations to go toward the care of rescued animals while raising awareness of animals in need and encouraging children to contribute to a great cause.

Arletta Montessori is thrilled to partake in the Rocks for Rescue fundraising effort!
