COOKIES, CAKES & CRAFTS SALE Benefiting Chloe’s Fund

By  | October 6, 2019 | Filed under: News

THE SHOALS-Volunteers for Chloe’s Fund have been very busy creating handmade crafts for the October 18 Cookies, Cakes & Crafts Sale! In addition to all the sweet treats people love to buy at our various sales, most of the crafts are one of a kind items. Due to the large amount of veterinary visits and surgeries, Chloe’s Fund is very low and could use your help! All proceeds from the sales of baked goods and crafts benefit Chloe’s Fund in helping with medical expenses for local animals and many at Florence Lauderdale Animal Services. Everything will be available from 8am-2pm on Friday, October 18 at the Florence-Lauderdale Government Building, located at 102 S. Court Street (the building with time and temperature on top) in downtown Florence.

Chloe’s Fund was started in March of 2017 after Shelter volunteers, Glen and Debby Nelson lost their beloved dog of 16 years, Chloe. After Chloe’s passing, Debby set out on a mission to help as many sick and injured Florence-Lauderdale Animal Shelter animals as possible. Since its inception, Chloe’s Fund vetted countless number of cats and dogs suffering from various illnesses and in need of medical attention and medication. Prior to Chloe’s Fund, the Florence Lauderdale Animal Shelter could not treat every unwell cat or dog that entered its doors. Their only hope was the possibility of a rescue organization stepping up and financing the needed veterinary care. For those animals with costly medical bills predicted and no rescue hero in sight, our dedicated shelter employees were faced with heartbreaking decisions; these decisions never get easier and no one ever willingly wants to make them.

With your help, Chloe’s Fund can continue to save the lives of hundreds of animals!
