The Fairhaven Animal Shelter’s fund-raiser, “Raise the Woof,” added nearly $7,000 to the animal shelter gift account, according to Animal Control Officer Terry Cripps. The money will be used to fix a leaky roof and to get some sorely needed electrical repairs to the building.
The event on Saturday, 10/7, included an Open House, yard sale, vendors, alpacas from Hill Crest Alpacas, music and food.
“One woman came in and left a check for $1000 with one of our volunteers. I had to chase after her to thank her,” wrote Mr. Cripps in an email. “Another couple gave a check for $500. With all of the negative things we see on the news these days it really warmed my heart to see all of the good in people during our event. “
The money will to into the gift account which is used to supplement town funds for the daily operations of the shelter, for anything from cleaning supplies to vet bills for the animals.
