In October we had the extreme pleasure to accept a donation of $40 from a group of youngsters who ran a lemonade stand to raise money for the Animal Shelter. Their names are: Kaitlyn Beard, Austin Beard, Zachary Kochinski, Brianna Weltner, Savannah Gowdy. They are all 3rd and 4th graders at West Dover Elementary and Beachwood Elementary.
The Beard family chose the Toms River Animal Shelter because they adopted two cats from the shelter. The kids worked hard all day to make the $40.00 donation. They are all a true inspiration to young people their age. From all the staff and of course, the animals at the shelter, a big THANK YOU!!! It is the generosity of people like them that help the staff at the animal shelter give the best care to the animals!!
