Anthony Katchuk, 13, a seventh-grader at Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg, gives extra attention Wednesday to a puppy at the Humane Society of Tampa Bay shelter in Tampa. Students volunteered during the school's community service day. Anthony spent most of his time with the puppy because it reminded him of his dog, Heidi. "It's a great way to learn some vital lessons in life," said Shorecrest student adviser Melanie Martin. "It's so important that people be responsible with their pets."
