A ist donates p~fing t0 Save-A-Pet Save-A-Pet celebrated its 2Oth Anniversary on Dec. 7 with an Open House at its new shelter on Maynard Church Road in Forsyth. During the celebration, local artist Cynthia Jenkins donated a painting that she painted especially for Save-A-Pet's new build- ing entitled "Love at First "Sight" Jenkins, who has four adopted dogs of her own, said that she wanted to do something for Save-A-Pet and chose to paint the joy of finding a new friend. She decided to paint an adult because, while it is easy to see the joy of a child with a new pet, that relationship is just as important to people of all ages. The Open House was a very successful event, of feting a silent auction, shop, refreshments, tours of the shelter and a raffle as well as unveiling of the painting. Save-A-Pet appre- ciates all of the volunteers, visitors and donations at the Open House. Come visit Save-A-Pet and maybe you'll find a new "Love at First Sight" friend. t i / t t J~
