Sunday's rainy weather was perfect for a fundraiser for some friendly four legged therapists.
About 200 people gathered at the High Noon Saloon to raise money for the PAWWS to Heal program. The event included three different bands, a raffle and a PAWS information booth.
Through PAWWS, animals work with children recovering from sexual abuse, physical abuse and mental disabilities such as autism and Down syndrome.
The organization hopes to raise money for a 2 - 5 acre ranch–like property where they can provide more animals and have onsite therapists.
The founder of PAWWS, Toni Schriver, says, "A lot of kids have been abused, perhaps don't trust adults anymore, so when you have animals, it just brings light to their faces, it's unconditional love, it's unconditional trust."
