E-T Staff Report

Zane Dickey (far right), 9, presents the Erath County Human Society with 226 pounds of dog and cat food and $100 in cash donations. Dickey requested pet food donations rather than gifts for himself at his fourth annual "No gifts, please!" birthday party. The pet food will help feed homeless animals, such as the two pictured here. Individuals wishing to donate similar items, volunteer their time or adopt a pet should call the humane society at 965-3247.
