3rd Annual Pets RULe Pet Fair Brings in More than $3,000 to Support and Aid Animals Throughout White County

The rain didn’t keep masses of pet lovers from coming out to attend the 3rd annual Pets at Risk of White County Pets RULe Pet Fair Saturday.  Dogs, cats, even rabbits and their owners all made their way out to the White County Fairgrounds to take advantage of discounted microchipping, $5 nail trims, dog training, engraved tags, to bid on more than 70 raffle items and much more.  Despite some on again off again showers and no sun, the event brought in more than $3,000 which will help Pets at Risk assist animals throughout the county in a variety of ways.  Organization president Tammy Knight says

“I’m continuously amazed and appreciative of the support from our community to help back our efforts.  There seems to be a never ending list of needs and animals who need help and by putting successful events like this on, we’re able to spay and neuter animals preventing further problems, help support pet owners during medical emergencies, as well as grow awareness and education with regards to responsible pet ownership.”

The group will now have about a month of down time before they ramp up their next event which will be the 2025 Pet Calendar Contest.  Community members will be able to submit pictures of their pets beginning in September.  The first 50 entered will be eligible for votes and then the community will choose the top 12 through donation through Corn Day on October 12th.  Those top earning animals will appear on 2025 Pets at Risk calendars.
