Animal Control Officers, Rudi Hicks (far left) and Bob Dodson (far right) received a check for $433.00 from Country Flowers and More owners, Gayle Giusso (middle left), Karen Wilson (middle right) and her dog Blue, Monday morning.
Wilson said that they sold a total of 46 bouquets, which contributed $5 from each bouquet, raising $230. The rest of the $433 was raised by additional monetary donations from the community and Country Flower’s customers. The ladies also had a few bags of dog and cat food that had been donated for the shelter pets.
Along with the bouquets the ladies also sold delicious candies made by Sweets & Treats to help raise a few more dollars for the shelter pets. Chocolate covered Oreos and white chocolate discs with Blue’s likeness on them for sale to help out Blue’s pals at the shelter.
“(Sweets & Treats) did a great job,” Giusso said.
Wilson and Giusso are planning on bringing back the Blue’s Special fundraiser for the shelter next March.
