BEAVER - Sunday Operation Underdog was raising money to send a foster dog to New York City for a special tv program but on Monday they are helping raise money for the other animals.
They hosted a hot dog and baked goods sale at the Erma C. Byrd Center for Higher Education in Beaver. Students at the center were able to purchase hot dogs, sodas, chips and more to benefit the animal advocacy group. Organizers say the last minute decision to hold the sale paid off.
"Yesterday we had a great event at tractor supply and the community really came out and supported us and what we're doing today is we just brought stuff what we had leftover today to the Erma Byrd Center to sell to our students who come here. You know for a last minute sales event we've done absolutely great, we've a lot of support and a lot of people talk about how it's great to have an organization like operation underdog in our community."
Wallace also said Operation Underdog cannot stress enough how important it is to spay and neuter your animals.
