Anyone wishing to donate books or games for the sale can drop them off at the Building B Reception in a box or bag clearly marked: Marc Lavoie - Dog Shelter or can drop them off in Marc's office at Building B, Room B221.

Thank you so much for your support of the amazing sale!

All profits made from the sale will go to support the Aggtelek Dog Shelter located on Csepel Island.

The Aggtelek Shelter has been an AISB partner for many years. It is one of the only shelters in Hungary that NEVER puts a dog down. Four times a year fifteen middle school students go out to the shelter to volunteer and spend time with the dogs. In the past we have bought an operating table, operating lights, dog houses, medicines and a training obstacle course for the dogs.
