Teen party for Animal Control raises cash, food

The birthday pool party last Saturday in Granbury organized by 13-year-old Tolar Junior High School student Sara Hale to raise money, food and other items for Hood County Animal Control brought in $30 cash plus several bags of dog and cat food, Animal Control Sgt. Kelly McNab said Thursday. For the second straight year, Hale told her family and friends she wanted them to donate to Animal Control instead of giving her gifts, and she gave half of the cash she received for her Sept. 23 birthday to the cause as well.
