BIG PINE CIVIC CLUB helps “RAISE THE ROOF — a Cause for Paws”
The Big Pine Civic Club recently helped raise $1,000 for the new Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center to be constructed in Big Pine. The club pledged $500 and asked the community to match that amount by placing donation cans at various business throughout Big Pine. The Big Piners were up to the challenge and it wasn’t long before the matching $500 was raised for a grand total of $1,000. If you’d like to learn more about the “Raise the Roof – a Cause for Paws” campaign, visit ICARE’s web site: www.ICAREforPets.org or call 760-872-3802.
