The Humane Society of the Lakes' Mardi Gras fund-raiser is Friday, and just in time. The shelter is opening its doors to the public March 13.


Board President Beth Pridday said money from the fund-raiser is earmarked for last minute needs for the shelter's opening and for things that couldn't be donated, for example a hairdryer for the dogs, kennels and more.

"This is an extremely critical time," she said. "It's like moving into a new home, you need the extra boost."
