PUT-IN-BAY – People often think of Put-In-Bay for the partying and weekend revelry, but there is another side to island life that most don’t usually get to see – the local and community philanthropy. Thanks to 11-year-old McKenna Stacy of Put-in-Bay, the Island Safe Harbor Animal Sanctuary in Port Clinton was able to provide medical care for a few more dogs after Stacy donated $1,290 to the sanctuary.
“She said we could use the money for what we wanted, so we used it for vet bills,” said the sanctuary’s CEO and president, Nancy Benevento-Brown. “We have so many infirm dogs here. It’s really the second chance ranch.”
