Animal sanctuary gets donations

Judith Bell's "The Trainer is In ..." program at Best Friend Nutrition raised $200 for Olympic Animal Sanctuary at Forks and its work rehabilitating dogs that have been surrendered and deemed nonadoptable.

Bell's program provided on-the-spot training for the public seeking advice on dog training issues, requesting

a minimum donation of

$5 for her professional services.

Nearly 40 dogs and their humans were helped.

Steve Markwell, founder and director of Olympic Animal Sanctuary, said, "Judith's generous work and donation represents a wonderful and unique situation where dogs and humans wind up the winners all around!"

The "Trainer is In ..." program continues from 10 a.m.-noon Wednesdays July 14 and Aug. 25 at Best Friend Nutrition, 680 W. Washington St., Sequim. Donations will be made to the Olympic Peninsula Humane Society.
