Indoor Garage Sale

     On Sunday-4-August  the Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II) held an Indoor Garage Sale in the Bogota Recreation Center.  This was their second garage sale of the year in Bogota. START II is a group that visits animal shelter, and take in adoptable animals offering  them a clean safe place to stay until a  permanent owner can be found. Shoppers were greeted by “Sammy” who acts as their Spokes Dog.
   A Veterinary contacted START II  about a dog who was not being taken care of properly. When the original owners face charges on Animal abuse  Sammy needed a new home. Members of START II  took him in and nursed him back to health. Sammy who was once nervous around people is now an animal who welcomes the gentle petting and attention from those attending START II event.  
  This event was an Indoor Garage Sale offering merchandise from clothing and toys for both animals and people , along with other items for sale. All the available items were priced at $3.00 or less to encourage more buyers. The proceeds from these sales will be going to START II to further help animals in need. This includes veterinary care, food and shelter for pets looking for their forever home. START II aids in the education and about the importance of spaying , or neutering house hold pets.
