Shawnee exhibit raises food for abandoned animals
"We are grateful for all of this support; it helps so much," said Sherry Claybrook, SPAR officer and volunteer.
Claybrook went on to describe the many hungry dog and cats that will be fed through these generous donations; however, she stressed that support from the community will always be welcome as "the need is so great."
SPAR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is not a breed-specific rescue; it sponsors adoption fairs, foster homes, and spaying and neutering clinics in an effort to help homeless and abused animals. For more information, including adoption inquiries, please visit http://www.sparshawnee.org/
"The Museum staff is overwhelmed by the generosity and the compassion of our community," said Merkt. "Our sincere appreciation is extended to all of the participating artists and all of the donors."
