Acts of Kindness: Audrey Rosenstein

LAS VEGAS - Audrey Rosenstein's passion is all about making a difference in a child's life.

"I always say people excel at what they have a passion for in life," she said. "It gets me going in the morning. It's always on my mind."

Rosenstein runs Peggy's Attic - a hidden treasure located behind Child Haven at 701 N. Pecos Road. The donation cottage serves children who are under protective care.

"This is my hardest population to serve," Rosenstein said.

She helped open the attic in 2001. The cottage is designed like a department store. Approximately ten children per day come through the attic's doors - selecting among the gently used clothing and supplies. The children are allowed to choose three outfits and a toy.

"Giving them something that is theirs, that nobody is going to take from them - children give you a hug, always a thank you," Rosenstein said.

$4 Dog and Cat Adoptions at Shelter's "Petriotic" Weekend

The summer months can be a perfect time to welcome a new family member, and the Animal Foundation is offering great deals for the holiday weekend.

From Thursday to Sunday, the Animal Foundation is celebrating Independence Day with $4 adoption fees on all pets that have been waiting for homes for more than three weeks.

The Animal Foundation’s “Petriotic Weekend” celebrates longtime residents and shelter officials believe more than 60 dogs, cats, and other pets will qualify for the deal.

During the summer months, the shelter can receive more than 200 lost, unwanted, and abandoned animals each day. While some pets are quickly adopted, shelter staff hope this event will encourage people to take a closer look at some of the pets that have been waiting.
