Thanks to our amazing community, over $7,500 was raised at the seventh annual Meow and Chow held Oct. 15. Lincoln Animal Ambassadors and The Cat House are grateful to the over 30 businesses and individuals that donated warm soups, fresh breads, delicious desserts, and to those that donated dozens of prizes. We also appreciate everyone who came out to support our event.
Considered by many their favorite event of the year, more than 200 diners and volunteers attended. LAA board member Blake Gilmore and The Cat House volunteer Carter Hulinsky called several games of bingo. The evening culminated in a raffle that featured an iPad Pro, mountain bike, and a $200 Target gift card. Around 50 volunteers worked the event.
Lincoln Animal Ambassadors addresses the root causes of animal homelessness in Lincoln and the surrounding area. The group prevents unwanted animals with its low-cost spay/neuter program, and keeps animals in their homes with an income-based pet food bank.
The Cat House is a safe no-kill shelter and adoption facility for cats in the Lincoln area. The group also runs a Trap/Neuter/Return program for feral cats. Both 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations are entirely volunteer run, and proceeds from Meow & Chow go towards their operating expenses.
Thanks to everyone who supported Meow & Chow by donating and/or attending the event. You save lives every single day. We hope to see you at next year's Meow & Chow.
