Cheers & Kudos

Thank you for a great pet-shelter fundraiser On Feb. 8, Carson Animal Services Initiative hosted the “Love Our Pets! Wine Tasting” at the Governor’s Mansion. What a successful event it was! It is obvious that there is a huge desire for a new city shelter and bigger than the desire is the need. Thank you to all who attended our function. Your donations bring us a little closer to the reality of a new shelter. I would like to give a special thanks to our sheriff, Kenny Furlong. When I asked if he would MC the event, he immediately said yes and took it from there. Thank you sheriff for bringing in an extra $1,500 through your passionate pleas!Thank you Ronni Hannaman, director of the Chamber of Commerce. Ronni designed the brilliant flier that help sell out our event!To Lone Mountain Veterinary Hospital, Sierra Veterinary Hospital, V & T Veterinary Hospital, The Purple Avocado and Artsy Fartsy Art Gallery, thank you for selling tickets!
