Garage sale profits to go to Pet Refuge

If you're looking for good deal or want to help out a good cause, there's a place where you can do both.

Pet refuge is holding its annual fundraiser called Cassie's Garage Sale. It was started after a puppy needed extensive care and they had a yard sale to pay for her treatment.

This year thousands of items donated by the public are being sold at in the bargain books parking lot. One-hundred percent of the profits will go to Pet Refuge.

The volunteers and the animals are excited about the money being raised.

“All those puppies and dogs would be yapping and meowing,” says Nancy Whiteman the vice president of Pet Refuge. “They would be very very happy. It goes for animals like Rodney who just recently had to go to Purdue and have surgery on his mouth. It goes for cats that come in and need dental work. Doggie's that come in and maybe they come in and have a broken leg and we maybe need to remove the leg or fix it, it's very expensive. So this is the kind of thing it goes for and then we can find them good homes when we get them all fixed up.”

If you'd like to shop, the sale runs until eight o'clock Thursday night, Friday and Saturday from eight a.m. to eight p.m. and Sunday from eight a.m. to four p.m.
