Western Plains Animal Refuge spent most of its existence operating through Jessica Braun's veterinary clinic, the Animal Health Center. In September, Braun closed her practice so she could focus on other career opportunities, but that did not mean the end for the refuge.
Although the refuge spent several months without a location and with limited services, it will resume operations led by a new president and a team of dedicated volunteers.
Paws for a Cause is a fieldwork team from FHSU and will be working with the Golden Q to organize the second annual rib cook-off. Paws for a Cause will use the proceeds it generates to help furnish the new location with materials and resources necessary for it to reopen.
The cook-off will begin at noon Saturday at the Golden Q. To compete in the event, contact the Golden Q at (785) 625-6913 by Thursday. Competitors are encouraged to set up the night before. Paws for a Cause will be available to help contestants with the set up and taking down of cooking equipment.
For any questions about the event, contact the Golden Q.
