Friday, Animal Aide of St.Thomas Elgin is celebrating 20 years in the community. Sherrie Goodwin, operations manager, says the beginning of Animal Aide was thanks to some ladies in a garage.
Operating just on donations, Goodwin says they try to get the word out,and depend on people what adopt to tell their friends. She adds although they adopt about 600 cats a year, some people have no idea they exist.
They're holding a celebration fund raiser today (Friday) at the Legion, starting at 7 pm. There will be sppeches, a silent auction, a DJ and dance, a 50/50 draw and more - all for just $10. You can email: firstname.lastname@example.org
