Animal shelter sponsors raffle to raise needed funds

September 16, 2018

HUNTINGTON — The Cabell Wayne Animal Shelter is conducting a raffle to raise needed funds for the operation of the shelter. The “Bucks4Barks” Raffle will offer a top prize of $5,000 and other prizes of $3,000 and $1,000. The drawing for the prizes will be on Nov. 4 at 21 at the Frederick.

Recently, the shelter went through an organizational restructuring and Courtney Proctor-Cross was named the executive director. Through her leadership, the shelter has identified numerous short and long-term projects that are deemed critical.

“The Bucks4Barks Raffle is a great way to generate a lot of awareness about the shelter and our mission,” said Proctor-Cross. “It’s also going to make some winners very happy.”

This raffle is intended to provide needed funds for the identified areas of focus at the shelter. Those areas include payroll, capital needs and general operations.

The shelter, along with One by One Animal Advocates, worked with Bulldog Creative Services, a regional advertising agency, to develop the raffle and the needed materials.

The event website, www.bucks4barks.com, as well as tickets and promotional materials were all donated by Bulldog.

“We’ve had a lot of very passionate supporters of the shelter and One by One and Bulldog have both given so much, we’re very appreciative,” said Proctor-Cross.
