New animal rescue holds first fundraiser event

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - ALFA, or A Love for Animals Rescue, had their first fundraiser event Saturday after seeing a need in the community.

ALFA Rescue is a new animal rescue in Jonesboro. They held a pet costume contest, pet talent show, face painting and a kissing booth. The fundraiser will help with the costs for cats and dogs to get adopted.

Theresa Johnson established All Paws Resorts for pets over two years ago, and wanted to extend their services to a rescue. She said there is always something else that can be done to help.

"We really need something bigger than what I can do with the business. We want to get everybody involved. No one person or business can do it by themselves," Johnson said.
