Shelter Hosts Community Barbecue, Adopts Pets

The St. Francis Animal Shelter in Buffalo hosted a community barbecue this past Saturday, to say “thank you” to the community and those that support the shelter.

The barbecue was the culminating event in the shelter's “9 Lives For $9” promotion, where all cats nine months of age or older could be adopted for only $9.
The promotion ran from June 14th through the 21st.

Board Vice-President Penny Loughan said the shelter was pleased with the promotion and the turnout for the barbecue.

Shelter board members donated the ingredients for the barbecue, and although it was free, they did ask for donations. The More than $225 raised in donations will go back to supporting the shelter.

And how many pets were adopted during the promotion?

On a related note, a family that had lost their cat almost two weeks ago, checked with the St. Francis Animal Shelter during the barbecue and was reunited with her, which of course, is part of the reason for the shelter in the first place.
