Wait a minute!  Is there some mistake?  13 prominent businesses taking credit and the sum total is $94.93.  Did someone slip a decimal point?  That's less than $10 per business.  Adoptions are great and our shelter is just wonderful.  They deserve real support from all of us all the time.  Surely these prominent businesses didn't realize that $94.93 won't go very far.  Have you seen the price of dog kibbles lately?  Dig deeper, Rockland and support your local shelter, a treasure to be sure.
