But the pooches (and kitties) at the St. John Animal Care Center have to work at being happy.
The volunteers at the Center are always scraping to help their charges get by. The number of homeless dogs and cats is always rising, and, therefore, so is the Center's need for food, blankets, beds, and toys.
“The ACC has no funds,” one of the volunteers told the Inquiring Iguana.
So, it’s time for the ACC to pitch for more funds. The next event is about three weeks away, the “No Fleas Flea Market.” IT’S an opportunity for folks on island to mount their own garage sales on the grounds of the Sprauve school ball yard. Sellers can reserve a space in the ball yard for $25. It’s also an opportunity for visitors to find some bargains in local art and crafts.
The Flea Market opens at 10 a.m, Oct. 24.
If the No Fleas Please sale is too far away, since you're in the States … you can do the simple thing to help. send Money. Via Paypal at http://www.stjohnanimalcarecenter.com/help.html
