AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - It was a rainy day to be outside, but the director of the Lee County Humane Society has a good reason to brave the awful weather.
It's all to raise money and awareness for pet adoption, spaying and neutering for the 17th annual "No More Wasted Lives" fundraising campaign.
The organization's director will spend the night in a kennel outside the Auburn Kroger until she raises $50,000 for the shelter.
The Humane Society has a spay and neuter clinic ready in Lee County, and they are waiting on legislation to pass in order to open it. Part of the money raised this week will help fund that project.
The shelter normally cares for about 5,000 animals each year.
The money raised will go directly to the animals and help with the shelter's new relocation program to get animals to cities where there is a greater demand for adoptable animals.
