To the Editor:
A huge THANK YOU to all of our friends who donated to this year’s Ark Animal Rescue and Adoption Dinner/Auction! Once again, the food catered by Blue Gate Restaurant was outstanding, Mike Strawser took care of our live auction in his usual persuasive manner, and the silent auction had something for everyone. A special thanks to Mongo River Run for the donation of a kayak and door prize. When you want to take a ride down the Pigeon River, stop in and thank them.
To all the volunteers for Ark, all the people who bought tickets and donated items for the auctions, everyone who worked to make it a success, you are making a difference in the lives of animals and the people whose lives are changed for the better when they meet their new best friend.
For their hard work in making the Ark Animal Sanctuary exercise area for dogs and cats a reality, our furry friends and all of us say a heartfelt “Thank You” to Nancee and Dan Furlan.
Don’t forget to stop in at the sanctuary to see the fully vetted cats that are available FREE to good, qualified homes during September. There are also beautiful, loving dogs just waiting for you.
We rely on donations, fundraisers and grants to help us maintain our various programs. If you would like to help, please send your contribution to Ark, P.O. Box 95, Howe, IN 46746. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and a letter will be sent to you for tax purposes.
