STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays that can be sweet or sour, depending on relationship status, but the Routt County Humane Society thought of a way to make it sweet no matter what.
To raise money for homeless animals in Routt County, the local Humane Society sold Sit Stay kits and invited residents to spend an evening during Valentine’s Day week with their pets as part of their Sit Stay Anti Gala fundraiser. Each kit included items to make a spaghetti dinner, treats for pets and owners alike, new toys for dogs and cats and even a pair of Smartwool socks. With each kit selling for $125, the fundraiser has raised $5,625 for the Humane Society so far, and 35 kits are still available for those looking to celebrate with their furry friends.
The remaining kits are available at the Humane Society, 760 Critter Court, from noon to 5:30 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday and noon to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
