BARKHAMSTED — Bikers Against Animal Cruelty (BAAC) held a bake sale at Winsted Feed and Supply on Saturday, March 4.

The event raised money to support the organization’s work and to spread awareness of ending cruelty to animals.

The group has evolved into an organization that helps both pets and injured animals across the country.
