ADLA 'Fun Raiser' Event at Tom's Tavern

ADLA 'Fun Raiser' was a great event!

Thanks to all that attended the ADLA Fun Raiser at Tom's Tavern on Friday! The event included a performance by singer/songwriter Amy Sellner, a Silent Auction, Maker's Mark Bourbon tasting, and interesting presentations.

ADLA volunteer Pam Kalish shared her feral cat trapping adventures and discussed the importance of TNR (trap, neuter, return) in addressing cat overpopulation. ADLA's Feral Cat Program has sterilized almost 5000 feral/stray cats since March 2009.

Officers Linda Thornton and Amir Ashrafzadeh from Sheriff Joe Arpaio's MASH unit provided information about the no-kill shelter created to house and care for abused animals. Inmates spend 12 to 24 hours a day socializing mistreated animals until they are ready for adoption.

ADLA greatly appreciates the efforts of Terry Ratner, who donated her time in organizing and publicizing the event. Also thanks go to:
