They opened their doors to the public, showing off some of the new upgrades to their building. They also unveiled their newly painted murals in their shed.

The non-profit group, Friends of the Wallingford Animal Shelter, also celebrated its birthday. The group was established last year to raise money for vet visits, spaying, neutering, and microchipping.
