The Monroe County Animal League (MCAL) begins one of several autumn fund drives Saturday with its Golf Classic planned for Oct. 2 at the Fountain Springs Golf Course in Peterstown.
Supporting one or more of the upcoming fundraisers is a great way to help the organization come to the rescue of abandoned animals. A possible event with a raffle and/or auction is planned for October and an online auction is set for late October or early November.
MCAL explains it “has been operating continually since 1987. It is an entirely volunteer organization, supported by a handful of dedicated individuals who pitch in wherever and whenever they can. There is no physical shelter, all animals taken in are fostered in volunteers’ homes where they are cared for, fed and brought up to date on vaccines.”
MCAL is a registered non-profit organization with no large corporate sponsorship. The group applies for and competes for spay/neuter grants and relies on individual donations to meet its needs.
Initial efforts of the group focused on reducing the number of unwanted pets through low-cost spay/neuter programs. In the past 21 years, the group has offered an estimated 6,300 free/low-cost spay/neuter vouchers for canines and felines.
The Animal League invites those with time and love to help stray or surrendered animals to call the hotline at 304-772-4445 or send a message through the Monroe County Animal League Facebook page.
