This week the NCSPCA would like to remind you about the upcoming Gimme Shelter benefit, only a week away, to be held on Friday, Oct. 7, at the Westport Country Club. As we have announced previously, the benefit will be held at noon, with registration beginning at 11 a.m. This golf extravaganza includes a buffet and prizes following completion of play. The format will be 18-hole scramble. The entry fee of $260 per team ($65/player) will help us achieve our dream of a modern shelter better equipped to meet the needs of our furry friends, as we will be matching contributions dollar-for-dollar toward support of the new shelter. To download a printable application, please visit our website at www.ncspca.org.
Our featured pet this week is Benny, is a Beagle, Blue Tick Coonhound with beautiful markings. Benny is very sociable and has both won over the hearts of shelter staff, and also made friends with most of the other dogs at the shelter. Benny is an all-around-great pooch; he's extremely smart, has terrific manners, and loves to play and have fun. His enthusiasm for life is infectious; when you meet him, you won't be able to stop smiling! Won't you please stop by for a visit? We are betting you won't be sorry - and you may just meet your new best friend.
