Approximately 100 people attended the fundraiser to benefit the no-kill shelter located on the south edge of Grant. Some good news is that a cat named Shamrock, who was featured in last week’s issue of the Tribune as having been in he shelter over a year, has since been adopted.

Those in attendance were treated to many delectable hors d’oeuvres, various wines and other beverages. Both a live auction and silent auction were held to also help raise funds for the shelter which is currently housing 10 dogs and seven cats. Five more dogs are scheduled to arrive this week.
