It’s All about the Animals, an animal Shelter in Rochester is excited to announce that their largest fundraiser of the year, Octopurr Fest will take place on Sunday October 6, 11:00 am to 4:00 pm,at the Shelter, 103 Marion Road in Rochester, from 11 am to 4 pm rain or shine. This is a free family event with local crafts, jewelry, homemade gifts, treats, gift baskets and raffle items to win! Children are encouraged to dress in Halloween costumes and trick or treat at the vendors tables. Each of our vendors will have candy to give out. We invite everyone to participate in the Tom Cat Ball Drop fundraiser by buying advance tickets for $10 each. There is only one winner for this Tom Cat event and that person will receive a $500 prize. Tickets can be purchased at the shelter, during our normal adoption hours of Saturdays or Sundays 1-4 pm and depending upon their availability, on the day of the event as well. This is an important fundraiser for our Shelter since we are a volunteer-only organization and 100% of any donations provide food, supplies and medical care for our animals.
It’s All About the Animals, Inc. is a cage free, no kill 501(c)(3) nonprofit animal shelter. We give abused and abandoned animals the opportunity to receive the love, care, and shelter they need until they find forever homes. Our happy cats have space to run, play, and explore safe enclosed outdoor areas. Each of our adoptable kittens and cats have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated for distemper and rabies plus they are given a microchip which is registered with a professionally managed database.
