Helping the dogs of Carbon County
AMY MILLER/tIMES NEWS
Carbon County Commissioners Thomas J. Gerhard, left; and William O'Gurek, right, recently accepted a $1,000 donation from members of the Carbon County Animal Shelter. Representing the shelter were Debbie Craver, county animal warden, second from left; and Tom Zimmerman IV, volunteer. Volunteers raised the money during the Rockin' Rescue event, held last weekend in Lehighton. Craver said to raise the money, they held a basket of cheer with dog products; a pick a pop game; and sold food. Part of the donation was also given by animal lovers who just gave money to help for the care of the animals. Currently, the Carbon County Animal Shelter, located on the Broad Mountain in Nesquehoning, is owned by the county and operated by Craver and a part-time worker, as well as over a dozen volunteers. To help the shelter, adopt a dog, or to volunteer, contact Craver at (570) 325-4828. Missing from the photo is Carbon County Commissioner Wayne Nothstein, chairman.
