Grief is the response to the loss of someone or something. Recently, a woman stopped by Aunt Dot’s Place and made a donation of four bags of dog food and about a dozen bags of dog treats.

Two people that she knew through dog agility had recently lost their dogs. She donated dog food and treats made by the Bellcate School in Essex in memory of two dogs named Demi and Mickie. Giving these treats to Aunt Dot’s Place was such a kind thing to do.

The Bellcate School, located in Essex, is an approved Middle School and High School special education school. When you buy the dog treats that they produce, you are supporting a “meaningful employment opportunity for youth with disabilities”.
