On February 26, 2018, I had a bake sale to raise money for EASEL (Every Animal Should Enjoy Life) animal shelter in Ewing. Helping animals is close to my heart because I have a special attachment to my dog Prince, and I have been riding horses since I was four years old. I chose EASEL animal shelter because they not only help dogs and cats, but they have saved a horse's life too. On the day of the sale, we served about two hundred people and earned revenues of $411.50. On March 2, 2018, we donated the entire amount to EASEL. To give you an idea of what the money can accomplish, a set of vaccinations costs about fifty dollars, and neutering or spaying is anywhere from $100-$150 depending on the animal. Emergency transport from fire or flood areas costs about $150 per animal. Finally, surgeries can cost up to $2,000 depending on the kind. I would like to thank everyone who made a purchase, and I hope to make the bake sale a monthly event.
