Harvest Fest to Support Animal Shelter

The event will include craft vendors, children's activities and plenty of other exciting features.

Get ready for a day of fun. Join us for a tail waggin' time on Saturday, Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter's ninth annual "Harvest Fest, Craft Fair & Family Event," sponsored by Goldmark Credit Union.  All proceeds will benefit the homeless dogs and cats at the Attleboro Animal Shelter and in foster care.

We are "Paving the way ... one paw at a time." With no city funding for felines, all medical costs and care of the cats residing at the shelter and in foster care with FAAS rely completely on FAAS. We also take on medical needs of dogs that need additional medical care that the city's budget does not cover.

The event will take place on the grounds at the Attleboro Animal Shelter, 27 Pond Street North in Attleboro. Pond St North runs between Read Street in Attleboro and Central Avenue (Rt. 152) in Seekonk.

There will be food and refreshments, music, children's activities, craft vendors and rescues, raffles, horse rides (11 a.m. to 1 p.m.), pet portraits by Paw Prints, petting zoo, apple pie baking contest and a pumpkin carving contest. Admission will be $1 donation per car load.

Crafter's spaces available 12 x 12 - FAAS invites you to set up a table/space and bring your wares to sell. For a vendor registration form, send an email to faaspets@comcast.net or simply go to our website at www.faaspets.org. A $30 (non-refundable) donation with your registration form is required to reserve your space.

It's past time for the City to step up to the plate and start funding the care of cats as well as dogs. The City is taking advantage of its volunteers. Then the volunteers might be able to put more effort on spaying and neutering programs and educating people about pet care.
