Support the SCRAPS Hope Foundation at the Reigning Cats and Dogs Auction and Chocolate Festival at 6 p.m. April 26.
Money raised at the event – which includes a live auction, pet pageant, raffle, appetizers and dessert – will go to the nonprofit foundation’s medical fund, which provides medical assistance to animals hurt by abuse, such as Nanook. The dog, now named Leonidas, had surgery to remove a chain from his neck after it became embedded. His first owner was charged with animal cruelty and Leonidas has been adopted by someone else.
The auction and festival will be at a former Harley-Davidson dealership, 6815 E. Trent Ave., the future home of SCRAPS. There are tickets and more information at The SCRAPS Hope Foundation website or by calling (509) 477-2760.
