CANFIELD, Ohio (WKBN) — On Sunday, animal lovers got to put their money where their mouths are, literally.
Angels for Animals held a Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournament at the agency’s Andrews Hall. Nearly 100 players were expected to take part in the day-long series of games.
As fun as that may be, however, Animal Charity has a very serious mission:
“Last year Angels for Animals spayed and neutered 9,700 animals. This is a huge impact on the population of unwanted pets,” said Diane Less with Angels for Animals.
As an example of how great a need there is for animal care, Angels for Animals began in 1990 with volunteers working out of their homes. Now, the organization has plans to build a 25,000 square foot facility that is open around the clock.
