Three local animal groups to benefit from 6th Annual Karlie’s Cause

Karlie Smick is kicking off her 6th Annual fundraiser and food drive for area pets on January 20th. Every year since 2009, this bright and compassionate middle school student forgoes the typical birthday celebration and instead raises funds and collects pet food for a local shelter. This year, her campaign will benefit three: Multiple Breed Rescue, the Lorain County Dog Kennel, and Community Action to Save Strays.

M.B.R. helps save dogs from death row at the Lorain County Animal Shelter and other Ohio kill shelters. The organization also helps low income pet owners with the cost of spaying and neutering. All monetary donations are tax deductible, and will go to M.B.R., as will most of the dog supplies received.

Any Dog Food will be donated to the Lorain County Dog Kennel. All cat food and cat supplies will go to CATSS (Community Action to Save Strays) in Oberlin

The fundraiser will run from Monday, January 20 through Friday, January 31.
This year, Karlie is excited to have the support of the Columbia Chamber of Commerce, who is offering to supply a Pizza Party for the grade who brings in the most money and supplies.

Karlie is asking for donations for both cats and dogs of food/toys/treats, and cash donations are also greatly appreciated. Please make all checks out to “Multiple Breed Rescue” and on the memo line, write “Karlie’s Cause.” Checks can be mailed to:
