Happy Halloween Tails fundraiser

A benefit for the Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary, "Happy Halloween Tails," is planned for noon to 3 p.m. Oct. 29 in the auditorium of the Kirtland Community of Christ, 9017 Chillicothe Road, Kirtland.

The family-friendly fundraiser (which is not affiliated with any specific religion) will include pizzas donated and made on-site by Wickliffe-based Wood Fire Catering & Baking, salads, cake, Halloween candy, cider and coffee. Also part of the event will be a silent auction, raffles, a playroom for young children and a room with some cats available for adoption (see below for more information on the cats available).

Tickets purchased by Oct. 24 will be $20 for adults, $10 for children ages 6 to 12, and $5 for children age 5 and younger. After that date, tickets cost $5 more. If space permits, tickets will be available at the door. Donations of cat food, cat litter, etc., brought to the event would be appreciated but are not required.

For reservations or for more information, call 440-759-0076 or email

Happy Tails, based in Chester Township, is a nonprofit cat sanctuary that is currently filled to capacity. The sanctuary has found adoptive homes for numerous cats, but some will spend their lives at Happy Tails because they are unadoptable because of age or disabilities. The sanctuary is recovering from a fire last year, said Jeanne Bones, Happy Tails founder and director. "Happy Halloween Tails" will help the facility provide food, shelter, cat litter, veterinary care and heat in the buildings for the cats.

Anyone who cannot attend the event but still wants to help can send a tax-deductible donation to Happy Tails Cat Sanctuary, P.O. Box 581, Chester Township, OH 44026.
