Volunteers are preparing to build the first of 100 dog houses for RUFFF, a very ambitious goal. The dog houses will be used by the inhabitants of the non-profit "no-kill" animal sanctuary R.U.F.F.F. House. The public is invited to help assemble and paint the pre-cut wood structures on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at CVS Pharmacy parking lot, 75 North Lake Havasu Ave. in Lake Havasu City. Building houses for homeless animals and a delicious bake sale brings our "big-hearted" community together for a much needed cause. Volunteers pictured creating the houses are (left to right) Mervin Fried and Jon Mayberry, from Kingman, and Ed Mann and Cathy McIntosh from Havasu. Many "builders" are needed and children are also welcome to help paint the houses if they are accompanied by an adult. Please bring your drill, drop cloth and paint brushes if possible, or just bring yourselves and friends and take part in helping homeless animals of the Tri-State area and beyond! Contact Ed at (928) 715-3399 or RUFFF at (928) 565-BARK (2275) for more information.
