      Alger County Animal Shelter Host Annual Rummage Sale

      The rain couldn't stop the Alger County Animal Shelter from having their annual rummage sale on Saturday. The Dog Days of Summer sale took place at the Tri County Fire Department Barn on Highway 13 south of Munising. People could buy anything from books to pillows to cat and dog toys. The animal shelter expects to raise about $3,000 for vet bills, kitty litter and operation costs.

      "So this is a really important fundraiser for us and it's really great to see this community pitching in," Alger County Animal Shelter Manager Kathy Glish said. "We have so many wonderful donations from people so it's really a nice fundraiser for us."

      The animal shelter also had a bake sale, raffle, and giveaways to go along with the rummage sale. People attending the sale even had a chance to win a doghouse among other prizes.
