  On Sunday-12-November the Save The Animals Rescue Team II (START II) held a Pop-Up Thrift Shop and Bake Sale in the Bogota Recreation Center.  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 a Thrift Shop 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. 
They also offered homemade bake goods with a Fall theme for decorations.
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 household pets.
