Patricia Turner of Potsdam continuously works towards the betterment of animals at the Potsdam Animal Shelter. Over the past few years, Pat, along with her husband Peter, has adopted several animals from the shelter. Additionally, Pat has also been fostering animals from the shelter, and has nursed over 60 cats and kittens to good health. An accomplished artist, Pat is also crafting silhouettes using photos of children, pets, landscapes, buildings to benefit the shelter. If you have a picture of it, Mrs. Turner can make it a piece of silhouette art. During 2010, she donated all the proceeds from her art sales, and plans to continue the fundraiser this year as well. Mrs. Turner charges just $30, half the usual cost, and gives all of the proceeds to the Potsdam Humane Society. Call Patricia at 265 6918 or email [email protected]. Orders may be left at the Potsdam Animal Shelter at 17 Madrid Avenue. Call the shelter at 265-3199 for additional information.
