ST. ALBANS, Vt. - The Franklin County Humane Society turned 50 years old on Saturday, and celebrated by holding a birthday bash at St. Albans Bay Park.

The Humane Society Director said this is their way of thanking the community for supporting them over the years.

"It's always nice to raise money. Humane societies are always doing that but today is more of a day of celebration and thanking the people that have helped us along the way and made it possible to save so many animals lives," said Rusty Posner.

They did accept donations, which of course will go to helping their animals find forever homes.
