Residents recently came out to Colonial Café to fill up on pancakes and support local four-legged friends.
Dozens of people brought their spare change to Colonial Café for their 2nd annual Penny Pancakes event where each pancake cost only a penny.
In return, restaurant managers asked guests to make donations towards the local A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter, to help the non-profit organization carry on its duty to provide temporary shelter and care to dogs and cats.
This is the second Penny Pancake Day for A.D.O.P.T. Last year they raised $1,500 and hope to raise even more this year.
“It’s nice to show the kids that we should give to people and animals in need. So
I think it’s a fun thing to do and an easy thing to do, and I think it teaches the kids good values,” said mother of three, Sheri Kupres of Lisle.
Over the past 22 years, A.D.O.P.T. has placed over 27,000 animals in permanent homes.
