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 started ten years ago with 22 men and women who had two things in common: a desire help abused and neglected animals and an enjoyment of motorcycles. 

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