Animal advocacy group gives money to shelter
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.
