You might recognize Kara Sewell better if you were peering at her over the brim of your early morning coffee. Kara is a member of the KWCH 12 morning news team. Now, she has joined another team — the Scruffy Muffins — to raise money and inform people about a very special event.
Woofstock, the Kansas Humane Society’s fundraiser (and the largest fundraiser for them of the year) is gearing up for their 17th annual event. The money raised for Woofstock will go to the Kansas Humane Society to assist them in caring for the 16,000 pets that will come through their doors this year. Individuals and teams signed up to raise funds for the event will attempt to meet the $50,000 goal by Saturday, October 5th. The money raised will go towards vaccinations, providing medical care for sick animals, helping underwrite the cost of pet adoptions, providing spay and neuter surgery for shelter animals and much more.
For those who have seen the impact that the Kansas Humane Society has on the community, getting involved with Woofstock is a no brainer. “There is a huge problem with stray animals and lost animals, [those] that don’t get the proper vaccinations or get spayed or neutered, and with animal mistreatment and abuse,” says Kara, the loving mama to an adorable adopted Pomeranian, Bailey. “Raising money for Woofstock is a great way to help the Humane Society combat these issues.”
