The Shamrock Pet Foundation, Inc. is a Louisville non-profit that exists to “to end pet overpopulation, reduce the number of companion animals destroyed in local shelters, and to save or enhance the lives of animals in need in our community.”
It doesn’t matter if you are a “pet person” or not, this is a cause that helps the entire community. And with Bob Barker’s daily television appearance no longer in the mix - it is a cause that could probably use some extra help.
Thursday night, the Foundation hosts their 14th Annual Art for the Animals fundraiser at the Mellwood Arts Center from 6-9 pm. This year’s theme is “Black and White” – meant to illustrate how adopting/owning animals can really “brighten things up” for people. There will be gourmet food, live music, juried and silent auctions and animals ready to be adopted, among other things.
Tickets are $75 – just enough money to spay or neuter an animal, according to the foundation.
