It was a party for people who are helping a local animal rescue, as the new Hope Animal Rescue in Hurricane held an appreciation day for their loyal customers at the Paws and Shop thrift store.
All the money raised helps ongoing projects with homeless animals. The event had food and door prizes, and people attending could get microchips placed in the pets.
“There are so many homeless animals that need help in the area, in addition to people who have their own personal pets,” Terry Miske, treasurer for the group, said.
“They know they need to get them spayed and neutered to help reduce pet overpopulation, but they literally can’t afford it. We are trying to help people do that."
Organizers said it is important to have your new pets spayed and neutered to help cut down on the pet overpopulation problem.
