Eight-Year-Old Helps Shelter Pets


On Dec. 3 Alameda Support Foundation (ASF) held its yearly Christmas fundraiser and plant sale to benefit the animals at the Alameda Animal Shelter. ASF raised some $3,000 for Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS), whose contract renewal with the city will be considered in January.

Eight-year-old Jason Goodell, who comes to every ASF event, baked cupcakes and sold them for a dollar each, raised a total of $50, which he donated to the cause.

“It was easy for me to want to help,” Jason said. “My rescue dog ‘Cupcake’ has changed my life.”

ASF is an nonprofit organization dedicated to providing assistance to community nonprofit organizations and hard-working individuals in need. Contributions to ASF can be made at www.asfcharity.org. Make donations to FAAS at www.alamedaanimalshelter.org.
