WKBT’s 2nd Annual ‘For Pets’ Sake’ to take place Friday

ONALASKA, Wis. (WKBT) – There’s a great opportunity to help out local pets and police K-9s Friday during WKBT’s second annual “For Pets’ Sake” event at Blain’s Farm and Fleet in Onalaska.

The donation drive will benefit the Coulee Region Humane Society, La Crosse Police K-9s and The Hunger Task Force. You can begin dropping off donations between 8 am and 6 pm Friday.

“We’re looking for new, unused items, unopened bags of food, and monetary donations as well,” said Miranda Becker, public relations and event leader at  Blain’s Farm and Fleet.

You can drive up or walk up to donate in the parking lot. Donations of food and pet supplies can come from anywhere, not just Farm and Fleet. If you can’t make it to the event, you can drop off donations in a bin near the Farm and Fleet store exits during June.

Burrachos is also taking part. The restaurant will cater the donation drive from 11 am to 6 pm. You can grab a bite after dropping off donations.
