(IV Humane Society needs public support)….That was a main message this weekend
. Fitness Oasis Health Club and Spa hosted a fundraising/auction at their facilities on Aten Road. It cost $10 to get in and it featured art pieces from local artists and some of the orphaned pets, themselves. Organizers said turnout was good, but they did not release any numbers. They said the important thing is to get the publics attention. The message being, support is needed to manage the shelter, that takes in about 500 animals every month. They are also interested in raising funds for the planning of a new shelter. The current facility is 50 years old. They say more events to raise awareness are being planned during the rest of the year.
