WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – A local organization spent their Labor Day weekend laboring away for their four legged friends.

The Sunburst Foundation held a fundraiser to help kick start the Pender County Animal Control medical program.

The new program will help the Pender County shelter acquire vaccines and deworming materials to help give their animals a better quality of life.

While the goal of the Sunburst Foundation was to raise about $1,000 they say every penny donated helps to save an animals life.

“We need to raise funds because we’re going to have to supply the vaccines and some of the supplies because the county is not going to be able to do that,” said Linda Ferrell of Sunburst. “We want to have that in place so they will go ahead and push the spay and neuter program through if we have the backing with the medical supplies and this and that.”

If you wish to donate to the Sunburst Foundation but missed the Labor Day weekend event you can mail a check to the Sunburst Foundation at P.O. Box 7527 Wilmington, North Carolina, 28406.

You can also make donations directly to the Pender County Animal Control Fund, which is at the Cape Fear Spay and Neuter Clinic. You can contact the Cape Fear Spay and Neuter Clinic at 602-1101.
