Tytus, 10, Orange Hunt Elementary, and brother Maksyn Jacewitz, 13, Irving Middle School, Springfield, with rescue kittens, Marigold and Lily. Along with their younger brother Justyn, the boys fostered 11 cats during the Covid quarantine. Asked why is adopting/fostering important to them, Tytus told us, “Personally, if you save animals from shelters that’s good. You save lives. They die if you don’t adopt them.”
