On Oct. 13, Bailey Whitcomb of Turner presented the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society with the donations from her 10th birthday party. Bailey, a fourth-grade student at Turner Elementary School, asked for donations for the pets in lieu of birthday gifts. Guests donated pet food, treats, toys and other supplies. GAHS, at 55 Strawberry Ave., Lewiston, provides a safe haven for more than 5,500 sick, homeless and abused animals in the greater Androscoggin area per year. The primary support for the shelter comes from fundraising events and donations of concerned citizens.
