BECKLEY - A local animal rescue group is fundraising during the entire month of October to help puppies and kittens get through the winter.
The Raleigh County Animal Rescue group is holding fundraising events called Paws For A Cause at the Pet Supplies Plus in Beckley to get supplies for the winter months. The group is hoping to reach around $2,000 but says every penny helps. They are selling paper paws for $1 which will be hung up in the pet supply store with your name on it.
"Winter is coming and we need a lot of things for winter, we can't do a lot of fundraisers so October is our month and Monica has given us the whole month of October to come out at Pet Supplies Plus to help get our babies adopted," said Missy Omar with RCAR.
"People drop off animals here all the time and we try to find homes for them and if we can't then we do reach out to the rescue so anytime we can help them out then it does help us put in the long run, because there is nothing worse than seeing a face like this at the pound," said Monica Richards with Pet Supplies Plus.
RCAR has cats, kittens, dogs and puppies up for adoption.
