Hi Hirashin,

That's a nice simple text that you've written to test your (still low-ability?) students. I looked at it quickly and here are a few comments.

Usually animals (and occasionally babies or elderly people in Japanese folklore!) are abandoned, whereas objects are thrown away. Your students probably won't notice but I thought I'd point it out. Keep it in if you want to test that particular verb though.

Line 3 - "these' usually refers to something already mentioned - none of the jobs have been yet.
'any of the following jobs' would be better.

Create our website (or possibly Manage our website) is better than Make our website.

Give advice on how to keep pets, to stop the owners from throwing away their pets - no comma after pets and 'the' can be taken out.

Hope that is helpful.
