Huntley Jaycees Help Animal House Pet Shelter
While the event at Parkside Pub was just supposed to raise money for the shelter, volunteers brought along some adoptable dogs. Algonquin's Don Terrell, meanwhile had dropped in for a cool one. "I saw all these animals walking around," he said. Finding they were up for adoption Terrell said, "I'm like, 'Well, I really like this dog.'"
However, that particular dog's name was Mary which didn't seem to fit with Terrell's already-resident dog named Riley so, "When she's home she'll be Rony," he said.
Animal House has a lollaPAWlooza celebration set for next Saturday, 11 am to 7 pm at the Shelter. "We pretty much always have 200 dogs," said Marketing Manager Debbie Oesterle.
