Teton Fund needs help saving local dogs

Autumn, left, once a resident of The Dog Pound in Athens, recently found a permanent home and a new buddy in Pennsylvania with help from a local transportation fund. The Teton Transport Fund saves local pets that might otherwise be euthanized by paying to fix, vaccinate and transport the dogs to places where they are wanted. However, the fund could use more donors to continue its work in Athens and Limestone County.
