Local Pet Resort Raising Money for Pets Affected by Hurricane FlorenceLast Edited:
A South Jersey pet resort is doing its part to help pets who lost their homes during Hurricane Florence.
Pampered Pups Luxury Pet Resort in Millville is currently holding a raffle of a handcrafted quilt to raise money to help pets in the Carolinas who lost their homes to Hurricane Florence.
Proceeds from the raffle will go to the American Kennel Club's Pet Disaster Relief program, which works to keep families and pets together and safe during natural disasters.
Officials say when families can't find a place to go with their pets, they stay beyond putting them and first responders in danger and this organization hopes to prevent that.
"They help you bring your dogs, get them to safety so you're not worried about them in the event of a natural disaster, and you're also not worried about your own safety or the safety of others trying to keep you and your family together," said Danielle Ford, owner of Pampered Pups Luxury Pet Resort.
The quilt will be on display in Pampered Pups' lobby from now through Thanksgiving.
Tickets for the raffle are $1 each and $10 for 12 tickets and will be sold in the lobby from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The winner will be announced on Black Friday.
