Debbie Brower, President of the Texarkana Friends of the Shelter group says, "Through the generosity of our supporters and donors, we plan to help save countless lives of many homeless animals in the Texarkana area, and this event will be one of several fundraisers we will be hosting this year."

The Animal Care and Adoption Center is in need of funding for many projects. It is dedicated to improving the lives of homeless and unwanted pets that come into its care by providing shelter and medical care while finding loving, responsible, permanent homes for the animals.

Brower wants everyone to know that, "For our sponsors, your donations will be a contribution to help the homeless and unwanted animals of our area. We thank you in advance for your willingness to help!" To get more information about the Fur Ball, call 903-334-9605.
