Hope House for Pets Fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

GILMER (KYTX) - A group calling itself Hope House for Pets is trying to bring a full-sized animal shelter to Gilmer. Gilmer veterinarian and President of Upshur County's Hope House for Pets Cherie Nazzal is heading the effort.  She runs a small, non kill shelter in the back of her vet clinic but she says she can only hold about 15 animals.  She says animals picked up in Gilmer are taken to Longview, and that typically ends up bad for the animal. 


"Longview they try so hard, and they are really good people - but they don't have the man power or the facility to keep up" - Cherie Nazzal, President, Hope House for Pets

To help raise money, she is holding a casino night fundraiser this Saturday.Tickets for Have A Heart are $50 each and include dinner, drinks, and gaming. The Backwoods Bombshell Roller Derby girls will serve Beer, wine, and margaritas.  The event will be held at Flyin' Feathers Ranch on Highway 300 in Gilmer, location donated by Alicia Nolte.  Doors open at 5, followed by a seated dinner from 5:30 to 7:00. After dinner, gaming tables, provided by the Longview Knights of Columbus, will open and the evening will end at 10:00 PM with a Chinese auction.  Chinese auction items will include Duck Dynasty merchandise, training DVD's from Caesar the Dog Whisperer, premium hay bale, expensive sunglasses, wakeboard, six months of fitness, multiple pieces of expensive jewelry, a year's worth of grooming, and much more! Everyone who attends has a chance to win, whether or not they play the games.  To purchase tickets or learn more about Upshur County Hope House for Pets or this event, please call 903-734-4909 or email upshurcountyhopehouse@gmail.com
