Shopping Helps Shelter

PLAINS TOWNSHIP — Those looking to help animals in our area spent their Sunday shopping in Luzerne County.

Blue Chip Animal Farm in Luzerne County organized a “shop for a cause” vendor show at the Best Western Plus East Mountain Inn near Wilkes-Barre.

There were dozens of vendors selling everything from candles and jewelry, to clothes and food for both people and animals.

Money raised from the vendor fees will go directly to the no-kill shelter in Dallas.

“We have over 150 cats. We probably have close to 50 dogs. We have a pot belly pig,” said Linda Antosh. “And that goes for their food, and vet care and their everyday daily living needs.”

Organizers said they raised about $1,000 at the event in Luzerne County.
