Debbie Stephens, secretary at the rescue center, said more than 100 people came to last year’s event.

“We hope many more people come than we’ve seen in the past. We really want to see it grow,” Stephens said. “We hope many people will come out to have fun while donating.”

Speakers from the Humane Pennsylvania Political Action Committee, Safe Haven Small Breed Rescue in Tionesta, and Happily Ever After, a pit bull rescue in Sligo, will speak on a variety of topics in the afternoon.

Following the speakers, Animal Advocate Awards will be presented to organizations and individuals in the community.

Rescue of the Year Award – Just Us For Animals, Punxsutawney

Lifetime Achievement Award – Charlotte Bloom-Grimme, Humane Pennsylvania Political Action Committee

Animal Advocate of the Year – Jess Lybrook, Erie Animal Network
