In 2012, Shydyn’s only wish for his 9th birthday was to receive “money for the animals” from the 35 guests attending his party.  With family and friends supporting his generous wish, Shydyn was pleased to present AIDA with the amazing sum of $815.00. What a precious gift.   Shydyn, you’re an angel!
