“The shelter is still accepting donations. We still have a lot of animals up for adoption, you can visit our website, visit our Facebook page, we are always on social media. We are just trying to spread the word and trying to get animals adopted,” said Ashley Wolo the Executive Director of Griffin Pond animal shelter

All proceeds from Sunday’s event will benefit Griffin Pond Animal Shelter’s pet medical fund.
