“We rehabilitate and rehome over 1,000 animals each year,” said founder Lori McCutcheon. “We’re always working on developing new programs and partnerships to save more animals from uncertain fates as well as provide many services to the community. We’re so grateful for the support of our volunteers and sponsors as well as Kathy Craine and Craig Thatcher & Nyke Van Wyke. We just want people to come out, dance and have a good time – and by doing so, save lives.”
Gala sponsors include Hero Sponsor: Lamar Allentown; Rescuer Sponsor: The Morning Call; Advocate Sponsors: Animal Lifeline, CMG of Easton and Susan Bella Jewelry; Friends Sponsors: Critter Corral, Willow Street Photography and the State Theater in Easton. Sponsorships are still available.
