Collar for a Cause

Two Marquette County businesses have come together to help find forever homes for homeless pets at the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter.

The 5th Annual Collar for a Cause event was held at Fox Motors in Marquette on Wednesday. The dealership sponsored 100% of the adoption fees for all animals that were adopted. More than 20 pets were adopted into their forever homes today. The next big fundraising event for UPAWS is the Strut Your Mutt Charity Walk. The event is on Saturday, September 8th at the Mattson Lower Harbor Park in Marquette. If you would like to register for the event, log on to
