Malone Pet Walk brings in $1,100
MALONE — The North Country Animal Shelter took in $1,100 Saturday at its annual Pet Walk, held in conjunction with the Harvest Festival at the Franklin County Fairgrounds.
The money will go toward the facility’s winter fuel expenses.
Each animal at the event was individually blessed by the Rev. Chris Looby of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Brushton before the Pet Walk began, said Shelter Director Shirley Morton.
Barkley and Bailey, two rescued dogs who each recently had surgery through generous public donations, were special guests. They greeted the crowd and accepted treats and affection, she said.
Barkley will be making a road trip to Plattsburgh in a few weeks to meet some of the Clinton County people who donated money for the operation to correct his back legs, which were broken in several places when his owner’s girlfriend allegedly kicked him.
