Shops of Baileywick Donates More Than $3,200 to Local Animal Rescue Shelters
Shops of Baileywick, a retail boutique located at the Harvest Plaza Shopping Center in Raleigh, donated more than $3,200 to local animal rescue groups, SAFE Haven for Cats and Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue. The money was raised during the Best in Show charity event that hosted the launch of a new product line as well as a pet adoption and silent auction. “We are thrilled with the success of the Best in Show event,” says Adele Fine, owner of Shops of Baileywick. “Not only was it a fun night, but we were able to raise money for two great causes.”
Fine presented checks for more than $1,600 to both Pam Miller, founder of SAFE Haven for Cats, and Nell Barnes, founder of Neuse River Golden Retriever Rescue. The money donated will help the organizations lower pet abandonment and raise adoption rates.
“We are so grateful to everyone who worked on this wonderful event," says Pam Miller, founder of SAFE Haven for Cats. “The donation is very special to us, and we are so thankful that we can continue our work in this community.”
