Angel Ridge Animal Rescue will collect veterinary supplies at its annual Barktoberfest on Saturday, October 1 in South Park.
The supplies, which will benefit animals who were injured or otherwise affected by Hurricane Katrina, will be sent with animal rescue teams traveling to areas on the Gulf Coast.
Needed items include bottled water, garbage bags, bleach, insect repellent, wire cages, paper towels, dog and cat medications, cat litter, gas cards, and collars and leashes.
A portion of the proceeds from the event, to take place at South Park's Community House on Maple Springs Drive, also will benefit veterinary care.
Angel Ridge is a Washington County no-kill shelter and sanctuary for unwanted, abused, handicapped and aged animals. For more information, call 724-229-7053 or visit http://members.petfinder.org/~PA231/

American Bog Bodies: The Archaeology of Ancient Wetland Cemeteries in Florida

FREE with museum admission
Recent discoveries of ancient human remains in “pond cemeteries” from Florida reveal fascinating mortuary practices dating to the Archaic, 7,000-8,000 years ago. The exceptional preservation of organic matter yields important details such as age, gender, disease, injuries, clothing, personal effects, last meals, ethno botanical knowledge, and season of death.http://www.carnegiemnh.org/x-posted
