Local business hosts event to benefit animal shelter
HUNTINGTON -- A little bit of rain didn't dampen the parade of dogs that came by Stogie's Discount Tobacco in Huntington's West End on Saturday.
In fact, a little water was exactly what organizers were looking for in order to raise money for the Huntington Cabell Wayne Animal Shelter and help a few furry friends find new homes in the shelter's latest satellite adoption event.
Stogie's Manager Patrick Miller helped organize the event with the guidance of Ashley Stewart, owner of Stogies.
Miller said it was important for local businesses to take a role in partnering with local organizations.
"In general, every kind of nonprofit group is struggling right now," Miller said. "There aren't unlimited funds, but there is always a need for people to help out. The shelter has been through some rough times recently, and its important for the community to help them out and show their support."
