The Animal Protective League (APL), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to assisting ill, injured and abandoned homeless animals, will hold its annual Chili Supper and Paw Paw Patch Bazaar on Sunday, October 28, at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 2200 Meadowbrook Road, in Springfield. The event will be held at times to be announced.
The annual Paw Paw Patch Bazaar will offer baked goods and many unique and seasonal craft items. APL clothing will be for sale and the organization will also be taking orders for Christmas wreaths, which are sold each year to support APL and its programs. All proceeds from the annual chili supper and bazaar benefit APL homeless cats and dogs.
APL's shelter at 1001 Taintor Road in Springfield is also open every day from noon to 5 p.m. for adoptions. For additional information on adoptions, volunteering or making a donation, call the Animal Protective League at 544-PETS (7387) or check the group's web site at www.apl-shelter.org.
