With town approval and the support of good neighbors all over North Mecklenburg, the Cornelius Animal Shelter http://www.corneliusanimalshelter.com/ is looking forward to their move from the current tarped facility to a new building.

Send a tax-deductible donations to:
Cornelius Town Hall Attn: Finance Department 21445 Catawba Avenue Cornelius, NC 28031. Please write on the check "Animal Shelter Construction Fund."
Just recently, C4AC held their first kick-off cookie book party and $1.00 from the sale of each cookbook was donated to the shelter.
I also hosted a Barefoot Book party and instead of receiving free merchandise, I took my sales percentage and donated to the shelter! (contact Lyndsey Burr if you are interested in hosting a Barefoot Books Party at www.mybarefootbooks.com/LindseyBurr)
We'd love to here what you've done! Please comment if you donate, host a party or attend an event.
