(Riverton, Wyo.) – Even though the big benefit yard sale for Riverton’s animal rescue organization, PAWS, was advertised for Saturday at the ACE Hardware parking lot on North Federal, the sales began Friday during set up.

“We had so many people showing up to look over the selection on Friday, Amy and I decided to start selling yesterday afternoon, and we sold about $2,300 worth of the donated items,” said Pamela Canham, who helped organize the event.

Judging from the many dozens of people arriving throughout the morning Saturday, the sales were continuing strong.

The annual yard sale is one of PAWS fund raisers held throughout the year to benefit the Riverton animal shelter and pet adoption services.
