Under the category “Giving Credit where Credit’s Do” (literally btw, check it out). Supervisor Virginia Bass and husband Matthew Owen are throwing a Fur Ball tonight.
I’m a sucker for the kitties (and dogs) and may discard all my strong feelings about the direction of land use policy in this county to support Virginia (and close associate Matthew) this June because of her strong pro-kitty stance. Or maybe not, we’ll see.
But still, I think this is a great effort and cause and name and kudos for Matthew and Virginia for their efforts.
Google has a hard time finding information, but John Chiv has written on this and has a good summary of what Virginia announced at the HCDCC meeting Wednesday. From Virginia, via John…
“Animeals lost their major corporate sponsor last year and Matthew and I, along with a handful of other local generous contributors, have been working together to keep this program afloat while we look for options and a long term solution,”
The ball is tonight 6 to 9 PM. If you can’t make it, or you love cats (and dogs) but $100 is not what you have in the budget – but you want to donate, here is where you can send checks directly – Blessed the Beasts of Humboldt County.
