Paws for the cause

Columbiana County Dog Warden Heidi Pecorelli holds Scrubby, one of the pound puppies available for adoption, during Saturday’s fun day fundraiser event held at the dog pound. Sponsored by pound supporter Bernadette Blakely, the event featured 50 craft and food vendors, kid activities and musical entertainment. The $20 vendor fee and the proceeds from each raffle basket they donated will go toward general pound operations, but Pecorelli said the money will most likely be used to pay veterinarian expenses. She said the only problem — and it is a good problem to have — is parking quickly became a problem due to the overwhelming response. (Salem News photo by Tom Giambroni)
