An­i­mal ad­vo­cacy group gives money to shel­ter

Austin American-Statesman - - COMMUNITY NEWS - — Sarah acosta, bas­trop ad­ver­tiser

Friends of Bas­trop County An­i­mal Shel­ter board mem­ber Amy Pavone is a strong ac­tivist for an­i­mal rights who for three years has vol­un­teered her time at the shel­ter, where she can be found ev­ery Thurs­day help­ing out with ad­min­is­tra­tive work and walking the dogs.

Be­fore she joined the shel­ter team she was vice-chair with Smithville Friends of An­i­mal Re­sources for five months.

When mem­bers of SFAR even­tu­ally dis­solved as a group, Pavone pe­ti­tioned them to re­lin­quish the funds from their bank ac­count to be used on be­half of the shel­ter.

“Food for the an­i­mals and lit­ter is not in the shel­ter’s bud­get so they rely on the kind­ness of strangers and do­na­tions to feed the ani- mals,” Pavone said.

A check from SFAR for $1,722 was re­cently pre­sented to the shel­ter.

“I have met the most kind­hearted, like-minded and in­cred­i­ble peo­ple through­out my time here at the shel­ter,” Pavone said.

If you are in­ter­ested in do­nat­ing or vol­un­teer­ing, con­tact the shel­ter at 512-549-5160 or email bcas­friends@gmail. com to join the FBCAS team.
