Ani and Friends at the July Alex and Ani Fundraiser

Shoppers at Alex and Ani, an eco-friendly jewelry store in the Stanford Shopping Center, exchanged greetings with Ani and her new friend Bella at the store’s fundraising event for PAHS the evening of Tuesday, July 18. Ani is one of PAHS’ PAWS 2 PAHS canine volunteers and usually visits schools, after-school programs, and senior assisted living facilities, accompanied by her person Sarah Clementson. Bella and her caretaker Lucy Madaffari who owns Tails Up Pet Care, a local pet-sitting service, have helped us at several past events. Both dogs are rescues, and both are extremely gentle and friendly older girls who very much enjoy meeting new people.

PAHS thanks the staff of Alex and Ani—especially Genia—for their ongoing support of our mission through fundraising events and Ani and Bella and their people for their invaluable service as volunteers for us.
