Residents in Neosho raise donations to help fund no-kill shelter

Updated:

Residents in Neosho raise donations tonight to help fund the shelter of stray animals.

Faithful Friends Animal Advocates mainly serves the Neosho community, but also covers all of Newton and McDonald counties.

Tonight the group held a chili cook-off and auction at Rocketdyne Church of Christ with all proceeds going towards a new facility that the group is building to house neglected and abused pets.

Organizers say no one gets a paycheck in their organization and that all proceeds raised go directly to helping care for the animals.

"We have no local shelters so we rescue as many as we can and put them in foster care for the time being," said Leanne Williams, President of Faithful Friends Animal Advocates. "Very soon our facility is going to be finished so we'll be able to save a lot more lives once that's open."

"We've raised money for the construction of the building, but of course there will be ongoing expenses to care for them once the building is open," Williams said. "Any money we raise goes directly to care for the animals."

The group is also working on a project from a different budget to purchase a thrift store, which will also raise money to care for the animals.

To find out more about making a donation, you can visit the group's web site at ffaaneosho.org.
