 I have shut this Crowdrise fund down. Instead:

Please make your checks out to "Save the Bench" and mail c/o Denise Shelton, 2514 Crist Street, Alameda, CA 94501. Thank you!




"It was designed to provide water and a resting place for animals and their owners in and around the park. Built in 1920 by Isabelle Clark as a memorial to her husband, it originally had a water trough set in the concrete. The remains of the bench still stand as a tribute to the efforts of a fine lady who wanted to aid the "dumb" animals in the area. At the time, the term "dumb" was used to refer to animals who did not have the gift of speech, and did not refer to their mental acuity!"
