Night to Paws this Saturday

Published 12:30pm Wednesday, July 6, 2011

The Madison Animal Rescue Foundation is hosting their annual Night to Paws event Saturday at the Marriott in Huntsville at 6 p.m.

Tickets are $50 and can be purchased online or at the door.

All of the ticket sales will go towards the Madison A.R.F.  and their commitment to pay for vet expenses and boarding for animals that need it.

This is the second time that the Madison A.R.F. has held this event.

“The first Night to Paws was a fantastic success,” Madison A.R.F. volunteer Madeleine Sparks said. “We had many concerned citizens who helped us financially that night.”

Pictures, information on animals and adoption applications will be available for potential fosters and adopters.

Food, raffles, door prizes, and a silent auction will be some of the festivities of the evening along with the live music from the local band Juice.

The silent auction will feature donations from businesses such as Blue Med Spa, Auto Zone, Pet Hospital of Madison, Megan Cohen Artwork, Auntie Jen Pet Sitter and many more.

Sparks said that the Madison A.R.F.’s ultimate goal is to build a rescue-friendly animal shelter for the city of Madison.

“We thank everyone who participates and helps in this event,” Madison A.R.F. foster Saranne Riccio said.

The Madison A.R.F. is a non-profit organization that is driven to rescue as many homeless animals from Madison as they can.
