Poker run benefits animal charity

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — There were some special guests of honor at the No Pet Shall Be Left Behind poker run in Youngstown on Sunday.

The four-legged friends are waiting to be adopted or fostered. Animal Charity Humane Society brought them to the fundraiser in hopes they might capture someone’s heart.

All of the proceeds will go to Animal Charity Humane Society.

It’s already at capacity, and just a few days ago it took in nine puppies from a Austintown arson victim.

“There’s a six week wait because the puppies are only two weeks old, so a lot of people have filled out applications. I encourage a lot of people right now is to also take a look at the pets that are there now cause  that would help us the most because we can get them adopted and fostered out,” said Jason Cooke, president of the Animal Charity Humane Society.

This is the second year for the No Pet Shall Be Left Behind poker run.
