GRAYLING – The AuSable Valley Animal Shelter recently hosted the Grand Opening of Camp Kitty, the newly remodeled Cat Room.
The room was designed to honor Volunteer Mary Wright. Pictured are Chris and Boots Wright, and Clare Spaulding and Ken Wright.
Mary was a loved and highly valued shelter employee and volunteer for several years. She was a tireless admirer and spoiler of cats and always made sure that each shelter cat and kitten got some special attention every day. She went so far as to bring favorite treats and foods and toys for each of her furry pals.
The cats always wanted to be near her or on her while she was cleaning at the shelter and Mary, being ever so patient, just worked around them and enjoyed the company. Her dedication and care were remarkable; she is missed.
The shelter is located at 5786 Fairground Lane in the county sports complex, open Monday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m. to noon.
For information call 989-348-4117 or visit them on Facebook at AuSable Valley Animal Shelter. Donations are critical to keep the shelter operating.
