Thank you from Its All About the Animals
To the Editor:
I just wanted to express my appreciation and say an overwhelming thank you to the many local businesses, vendors, individuals, volunteers, artists, media, board members, attendees and to my amazing husband Oren, all who helped contribute to the success of this year's Octopurr Fest event hosted by our It's All About the Animals shelter on Oct. 6. We surpassed last year's attendance numbers and could not possibly have accomplished such success, without everyone's participation.
There were over 115 donations from local area individuals and businesses, and 100% of those donations directly support our shelter. This event is our largest fundraiser of the year and all money raised, goes directly to spaying, neutering, vaccinations, microchips, feeding, housing, supplies, medical costs and overall living expenses of the cats.
Adoption fees do not cover the entire cost of running a shelter. Those cats who end up at our shelter have been neglected, abused, or abandoned and are kept safe and healthy in free-roaming cat houses, with access to safe, enclosed outdoor areas. Donations of any size, are always appreciated, throughout the year, since the operating costs for the shelter are ongoing and we operate without any government-funded assistance.
The list of those businesses who have donated is now on our web site, http://www.itsallabouttheanimals.org and we encourage area residents to support all the businesses who donated to this event because they understand what we're doing here. It's All About the Animals, Inc. is a cage free, no kill 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal shelter with no paid staff. We give abused and abandoned animals the opportunity to receive the love, care, and shelter they need and deserve, until they find forever homes, which we always hope happens soon. Come meet them, any Saturday or Sunday between 1 and 4 p.m. You may just fall in love.
Thank you everyone, so much! We could never do as much as we do, without your help.
On behalf of our cats and the people who care for them,
