Aiding Angel

Many of you remember the story about Angel, the severely injured dog who was found by Don Huhnke, of Romeoville, and eventually adopted by the Huhnke family.

Liz Bagley, founder and president of Making a Difference Rescue, helped the Huhnke family with veterinary costs.

Now the group is looking to raise more money to assist other animals.

Roberta Drake, a volunteer with Making a Difference rescue, organized a fundraiser, from 2 to 5 p.m. Nov. 11 at Hope United Methodist Church, 2506 Caton Farm Road in Joliet.

The fundraiser will feature a bake sale and raffle. Raffle items include a gift certificate for Merichka’s and a gift basket containing jewelry, candles, and other items.

Household goods such as candles and picture frames, also will be available for sale.

All of the money received will go to vet care for the animals. While the volunteers work at their own expense, the veterinarian has to be paid.

Animals rescued by Making a Difference are tested for FIV and feline leukemia (cats) or heartworm (dogs). They receive their shots and are spayed or neutered; as well any other needed medical care.

If you would like to donate baked goods or have questions, call Roberta Drake at (815) 630-4504.
