Resident raises funds for homeless animals

Lilly Ellis has been running fundraisers for the Bradford County Humane Society since she started her vacation, about two months ago in Athens, Pa., with her grandparents. Her latest venture is a yard sale, which lasted three days, from July 9 to July 11.  

Lilly baked cookies and sold homemade lemonade as well for the hungry browsers, while her cousin Emerson Baker sold water. The whole family worked with Lilly because the yard sale became a fairly enormous venture, raising more than $350.  

Lilly Ellis became interested in Bradford County Humane Society’s need to expand the shelter to provide more room for long term and quarantine dogs, such as Bram, who is a soulful dog, just not used to people. 

Bradford County Humane Society is a no-kill shelter, and a United Way of Bradford County agency. Adoptable pets at BCHS may be viewed at
