The animal shelter wishes to once again express thanks to Elliot, the little girl who donated the proceeds of her jewelry making enterprise to the shelter. For her generosity she was rewarded with the adoption of Robert, the brown male guinea pig with the ruby red eyes. He is about to be a mountain man, moving with Elliot and her family to Colorado at the end of their vacation. Two other young people, Olivia and Sage, set up a body art business and gave temporary tattoos to their clients. The $31.00 they made they gave to the shelter. We thank them as well.

Two of the cages in the lobby of the Animal Shelter are adorned with blue ribbons. Ruby, the white rabbit with artfully-placed black spots and Twinkie, a large black male guinea pig, won honors at the Celebration of Pets last weekend. Both animals have been hand raised and are gentle and cuddly. So are our other less distinguished guinea pigs, Lucy, Ethel, and Robert. Those guys have red eyes like pets from outer space.
