Animal shelter gets a huge boost

By Jackie Dapkus

Dear Editor:

The Give 'Em Shelter building campaign for the Surface Creek shelter received a huge boost with the success of the Crockpots for Critters on Feb. 13. The event raised almost $8,000 and was so much fun! Volunteers who staff the Shelter Shoppe Boutique Thrift Store which supports the shelter hosted the event. Businesses and individuals donated to the door prizes and the silent auction. Thank you so much to those donors, the donors who bid on items and entered into the door prize drawing. Beth Williams provided amazing background music and donated all her tips to the shelter building fund.

The board of the Friends of Cedaredge Animal Control and all the shelter and shoppe volunteers truly appreciate the support of the community in our mission to provide adoption guaranteed, open admission animal sheltering for the Surface Creek Valley. Thank you and we'll see you at the Metamoocil Mountain Boys concert on March 5!
