GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Cats and dogs at the Humane Society of South Mississippi are eating and sleeping a bit better, thanks to generous donations from the students at D'Iberville High School  and D'Iberville Middle School.

A bus full of supplies collected by the students were dropped off at the shelter on Thursday.

The supplies included food, treats, blankets and toys for the animals.

Of course, after the goodies were delivered, who could resist a little playtime with the students new friends.

This was a project that came from the heart.

"We're a community service class. That's what we do," said student Kaityln Galle. "We're trying to find things to help out our community and things like that, and so I just saw this as a great chance to get all the students involved. People love animals. They like to help the cats and dogs."

In addition to the supplies, the students also collected more than 700 dollars for the shelter. The money will be used to buy heartworm medicine.
