A fundraiser on Valentine's Day for Save-a-Pet Animal Rescue raised about $15,000, according to a report published in Newsday.
The event, held at Flowerfield in St. James, was attended by about 200 people. According to Newsday, the Fur Ball, now in its 12th year, is Save-a-Pet's largest fundraiser of the year. The event was rescheduled for Valentine's Day from its initial date in November, which was postponed due to Hurricane Sandy.
Dori Scofield, the founder and director of the Port Jefferson Station-based nonprofit, said: "It’s important that we unite people together to help orphaned animals."
