Local News

MIDLAND, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) — Finn and Sawyer Austin know what to do when life gives people lemons.

I really like dogs but the animal shelters are getting overwhelmed.

Sawyer Austin, 10 years old volunteer

I love helping people its way fun. I have helped a lot of times. This is my first lemonade stand.

Finn Austin, 4 year old volunteer

The money raised is going towards the organization’s efforts to slow population growth among wild cats and dogs. Sawyer volunteers every Saturday at the farmer’s market in Midland. The organization’s about page on Facebook reads: To make spay and neuter services and other preventative care affordable and accessible to all pet owners in the West Texas area.

Sawyer says they sold quite a bit of lemonade, but also offered T-shirts, decals, key chains, stuffed animals and bandannas.

The organization is holding a spay/neuter/vaccination clinic this Thursday at the Odessa Police Department and has other upcoming events posted here.
