Byline: Submitted by Starfish Animal Rescue
Starfish Animal Rescue, a Batavia-based no-kill shelter, will hold an annual bake sale, pizza lunch and gift basket raffle fundraiser from noon to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9, at Riverside Pizza & Pub, 102 E. Main St. in St. Charles. The public is invited. Admission is free.
Homemade baked goods, half-priced pizza, a 50-50 raffle and festive gift baskets will be featured. Proceeds benefit Starfish animal-rescue operations.
With a shelter at 167 Oswalt St. in Batavia, Starfish mobilizes volunteers to drive dogs, cats, puppies and kittens from rural Kentucky communities for adoption or fostering in Chicago-area homes.
"Starfish Animal Rescue is an organization that is dedicated to saving animals from kill shelters and finding them good homes. There are many ways to help us save these pets, such as adopt a pet, donate and/or become a foster parent," said Margie Swift of Plainfield, Starfish founder.
Founded in 2006, Starfish has saved almost 6,000 animals. To learn more about the no-kill animal shelter, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit Starfishanimalrescue.com.
Maybe you know that you are not able to commit to the life of an animal but want to help. They can't take in the majority of the rescued animals without foster homes.
Your job as the foster is to take care of your rescue but also to teach them things that will help get them a new home faster, including housebreaking, sharing, cuddling, crate training, etc.
