ALBERT LEA, MN — Folks hit the streets in Albert Lea to help cats and dogs in need.
The Humane Society of Freeborn County and its volunteers held its “Buckets on Broadway” fundraiser.
The money raised goes for operating costs and another needs at the shelter.
With more animals finding their way to the society, shelter leaders tell us the money is needed.
“We always experience a lull in the early or later winter months and early spring,” Shelter Director Christa Stieler said. “Now, we are seeing a lot of kitten influx again and a lot of puppy influx. So therefore, our vet bills and health costs are going up. So, we definitely do depend on this money today.”
The shelter would like to use some of the money to some cat cages that will complete the cat room.
