Pancake breakfast raises money for animals
A pancake breakfast equaled a tasty way to raise funds to help reduce the pet overpopulation.
GROWL sponsored the Dec. 2 event at the Masonic Lodge in Williston. All proceeds will help GROWL continue to fund a low-cost spay/neuter program because the organization pays for half of all surgeries that are done when Fido Fixers come to Williston. For example, if a surgery costs $80, then the pet owner pays $40 and GROWL pays the other $40.
“As of October 1 we had helped with 94 surgeries and had contributed $2,900,” said Dawn Pennington with GROWL. These stats are from a four-month period (June through September).
Currently, anyone is eligible to participate in the low-cost spay/neuter program.
GROWL also assists with some cat and kitten trap and release, which includes paying for medical expenses.
Pennington believes in the mission of what they do and was excited about the opportunity to bring Fido Fixers to Williston. She thanked everyone who have volunteered or helped in some way.
“Whether large or small, it does take an army to make anything a success. We will continue to trek forward for the animals,” she said.
More fundraisers will be held in the future.
