    Yesterday we were invited to have an infomation table at the Galaxy Theatre in Riverbank. Volunteers received $170 in donations. It was one of our youngest volunteers, Britnie that got over $100 in donations because she asked everyone that came in the doors of the theater if they would please help save dogs and cats of Stanislaus County.

    Several of the donors commented that they were impressed with Britnie and that she should get a commission. Just goes to show that our young volunteers make such a huge difference!

    Galaxy donated 6 movie tickets and allowed all the volunteers to stay and watch Cats n Dogs for free! Many thanks to Galaxy for allowing us the opportunity to help cats & dogs.
