The Daviess County Pork Producers will be serving up some delicious pork burgers during the next WBKR Yard Party to benefit SAINT (Saving Animals In Need Together). You can help the animals at the Daviess County Animal Shelter just by stopping by to eat.

SAINT (Saving Animals In Need Together)

Saving Animals In Need Together is a group created by animal advocate community volunteers. They help area shelters and animal rescues to help animals in need. The mission of SAINT is to raise money to help shelter animals with medical costs, transports to rescues, helping with the cost of the low-cost spay/neuter clinic, and so much more. I know many of the volunteers personally and they are homeless animal advocates that want to save as many animals as possible. Many volunteers are the ones that transport animals out of area shelters and drive across the country to give pets a second chance at life. They are hard-working dedicated heroes. SAINT is also a non-profit that depends on fundraisers like this to make its mission a reality. They make my animal-loving heart happy!

We can't wait to see you at the WBKR Yard Party on Friday, sponsored by TTMA. Thank you to the Daviess County Pork Producers and everyone that helped with the event!

Don't forget that they always need donations. Beyond monetary donations, you can always drop off dog or cat food. Cat litter, dog beds, food/water dishes, treats, along with towels and blankets. You can always reach out to any area shelter to see what's needed the MOST at any given moment. Becoming a shelter volunteer is also a great way to give back and help save lives.
