Benefit raffle for pets

By jim Published: April 6, 2009

Responsible pet owners know one of the best things they can do for their cat or dog is to have them spayed or neutered. The benefits of spaying and neutering are far-reaching, since altered animals tend to be healthier and have fewer behavioral problems.

Also, they don’t contribute to the overpopulation problem, so fewer animals end up homeless, in shelters or on the street. For 28 years the Animals Protection Guild has sponsored low-cost spay and neuter programs in the community.

The group tirelessly raises funds to assist with spay and neuter programs by sponsoring the Animal Attic, a resale store located at 3124 Ninth St. S.W., in Canton. Here they accept donations of new or nearly new items for sale, with all proceeds going to benefit spay and neuter programs. Since 1982 the Guild has financially assisted with over 68,000 surgeries.

Now you can help the animals. On Friday, May 15, 2009 the Animal Protection Guild will host their 5th annual Reverse Raffle at Skyland Pines on Columbus Road N.E. in Canton. Tickets are $50 each and the Grand prize is $1,500 along with five $50 prizes and numerous door prizes. Master of Ceremonies for the event will be local attorney and civic leader John Werren.

For tickets, call 330-494-0006.

The Animal Attic Resale Store is open Tuesday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information or to donate items, call 330-455-2001.
