A tremendous THANK YOU to everyone involved in Saturday’s Cut-a-thon at Visions Hair Studio & Day Spa!
Animal welfare work is not usually glamorous – we’re out on hot days for adoption events, covered in fur from transporting cats and dogs, and generally more concerned about keeping clean than looking good. Not on Saturday, though…everyone left the event looking better than when they came.
First, a big Thank You! to Rebecca Seedorf, owner of Visions, for hosting the Cut-a-thon and to her staff, Aaron, Christina, and Allison, for donating their time and service fees for this event (100% of all services will go to the surgery fund). We are awed by your generosity.
We’re also thankful for our many friends who supported this event (and spay/neuter) by getting their hair cut, buying raffle tickets, and purchasing products.
Spay/neuter saves lives and so does adoption. Attending the event, hoping to find forever homes were Charlie, a Walker Hound being fostered through Animal Rescue of Tidewater, and Dottie, a sweet Tuxedo kitten being fostered by Rebecca through Norfolk Animal Care Center.
Our goal was to raise $650, which would pay for one surgery clinic. Not only did we meet that goal, we exceeded it by raising a total of $1,210.77, nearly enough for two clinics!
Our next fundraiser will be August 10, 2010 at Moe’s Southwest Grill on 21st Street in Ghent. Join us from 5:00-8:00pm, when Moe’s will donate 10% of all sales to SpayHR.
