The comedy troupe Laughter Zone 101 will perform at a fundraiser for the CARES cat shelter Nov. 21.
The Canadian Animal Rescue and Extended Shelter is based in Milner and started in the early 1990s to help feral, unwanted or sick cats.
“We have grown to a dedicated group of approximately 60 people, mostly volunteers and office staff who maintain the shelter, providing love, care, medication,vet services, and adoption services for up to 100 unwanted or abandoned cats,” said Clive Ellis, the chair of the fundraising committee.
To help fund the efforts of this no-kill shelter group, the public is invited to an evening out at Jimi Mac’s Pub, 19935 96th Ave., starting at 6 p.m.
The evening features the comedy, a silent auction, 50/50 draws, and a burger and drink dinner for $25.
Tickets are available by contacting Ellis at 604-533-4007 or email@example.com. The event is not open to minors.
Cats that aren’t adopted out spend their lives at the shelter, cared for by volunteers.
“We operate a TNR Program (trap, neuter and release) which helps regulate and hopefully reduce the amount of unwanted and/or abandoned kitties,” Ellis added.
