Laber of Love hosting fundraiser

MIAMI COUNTY — The Laber of Love Pet Rescue is holding a fundraiser on Saturday, May 14. The Great Canine Follicle Debacle Mystery Dinner Adventure will be held at Staunton Grange Hall in Troy, located at 1530 N. Market St.

The night promises a wide array of festivities including a three course meal of salad, spaghetti and meatballs with a side of garlic bread, and Frisch’s cheesecake with coffee for dessert. Throughout the event, attendees can bid on a plethora of silent auction items that have been donated for the event. An automatic carpet cleaner, a 14K chain necklace with a Garnet stone, a pie a month for a year from Spot, and a coffee lovers basket are just some of the available items.

Those in attendance will also have a chance at taking home some cash for themselves with a 50/50 raffle. When you buy one raffle ticket, half of the earnings go to the prize pool and the other half goes directly to the rescue. Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the duration of the night.

The main event of the night is the Bestbred Dog Show. When a mysterious crime causes the show to come to a grinding halt, it is up to the audience to crack the case and save the show.

The fundraiser offers fun for the whole family and the proceeds go directly to the Laber of Love Pet Rescue.

Tickets for the event must be purchased ahead of time and are only available online. Tickets are available for $15 and can be found at laberoflovepetrescue.com/events.

The Laber of Love Pet Rescue is a non-profit organization founded in August of 2019.

“Our mission is to provide hospice care to older pets or those with untreatable medical conditions that find themselves without a family; to allow these pets to live out the remainder of their lives with love, dignity, and comfort by providing a safe home and necessary medical care; and to provide education to the public regarding the care of these pets,” said Joe Laber, vice president of the board of Laber of Love.

Their mission is not easy or cheap. “On average, each pet in our care can cost $1,200-plus,” said Laber. But the love the animals receive in exchange is priceless.
