3. Write a letter to your Paw Pal and mail it to JHS using the following address:

(Make sure to begin your letter with “Dear [your Paw Pal’s name]” so that we know who it’s for! Please be sure to spell the pet’s name correctly.)

4. Be sure to include a return address on your envelope so that your Paw Pal can mail you a reply!
