The Friends of Mount Vernon Animal Shelter will be holding a fundraising night at Panera Bread in White Plains to solicit donations to help defray costs associated with running the shelter. The shelter, founded in 1974 is a municipal shelter that serves as a safe haven for thousands of domestic animals. They promote both adoptions and fostering, and welcome volunteers to raise funds and collect supplies.
A program of Pet Rescue, the Friends sponsor a behavioral training and evaluation program for dogs, purchase beds for kennels, promote adoptions, help with vet care, and provide an ongoing supply of treats and toys for both the cats and dogs. See the flyer below for details on the event. All donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.
