CHARLES TOWN, W.VA. -- "But we can help a few animals, you and I. " That is the mantra of Anna C. Briggs who, since she was 14, has championed the cause of stray and lost cats and dogs. Earlier this month, Briggs reached her 100th birthday. Her legacy, when it comes, will live on in her life's work and that of her late husband, James P. Briggs, in the National Humane Education Society and the Briggs Animal Adoption Center. Both are housed in an 8-year-old, 18,000-square-foot, Cape Cod-style building on U.S. 340 south of Charles Town.
