NORTH PLATTE, Neb. The holidays are all about love and friendship. And let's face it, there's no better friend than man's best friend.
PAWS-itive Partners and Premier Rental are helping to make sure our animals are properly fed during the holidays.
Starting Wednesday at Premier, people can bring 3 cans of food, or 3 lbs. of food will earn people a raffle ticket that will be put into a drawing for a 49 inch flat screen TV. People can also purchase a raffle ticket for just $5 as well.
Premier owner Chad Fosdick offered to giveaway the TV as a way to help PAWS-itive Partners re-stock their food pantry.
He says as a pet owner he has a soft spot for animals.
"So I'm personally an animal lover of course. I have 2 dogs and a cat. Animals are just as much a part of our family as our actual family. And then also during the holiday season we know that money does get tight all the way for families," says Fosdick.
"The North Platte Pet Food Pantry has always done a tremendous job to help with some of those additional expenses that aren't usually occurring for a family."
While the shelter has sufficient dog food, they are in great need of cat food.
The fundraiser ends on the 19th and the drawing for the TV is on the 20th.
