Rummage Sale helps Animal Shelter deal with Rising Numbers

Updated:
PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

Rising numbers in puppy and kitten births prompts a local animal shelter to raise funds. 

The SEK Humane Society held a rummage sale behind "The Doggie Bag" resale store in Pittsburg.

People could buy books, movies, clothes and other things for as low as a quarter.

The sale was held to raise funds for the shelter during kitten and puppy season.. when more of both are being brought into the shelter..

Jasmine Kyle, Promotions Manager for the SEK Humane Society:"Right now it's puppy and kitten season, that's a lot of newborn puppies and kittens that we get, and that formula is super expensive. We just had the mutt run event, which we got around two-thousand dollars for, but we still are needing those funds right now, monetary funds especially, to buy the formula"

The SEK Humane Society is holding it annual,"Bark in the Park" event next Saturday from 8 to noon in Lincoln Park to raise funds as well.
