Fundraiser to Help Shakespeare Animal Fund

Posted: Updated:

This weekend you can help a local nonprofit organization that gives veterinary care to animals in need. 

"We really try to help when there's an emergency like maybe the animal would be put down if you couldn't afford to do it. We just really care about the animals and don't want them to suffer," Carole Anderson with the Shakespeare Animal Fund explained. 

The fund started in 2005. It helps pay veterinary bills for pets of people who are elderly, disabled or simply can't afford it. 

The fund relies entirely on private donations to operate, so organizers are asking for your help to keep them going. 

Friday, November 30th at 6 p.m. the fund is hosting a holiday fundraiser. It's happening at the Grand Sierra Resort. Adult tickets are $25 ahead of time or $30 at the door. Tickets for kids 12 and under are $7. To buy your tickets, call (775) 232-7753.

The event will include food, a silent auction, music, face painting and a visit from Santa Claus.
