Carole's Critters

Many of us remember Carole Ann Morgal, the Program Director of KWPT - The Point. If you don’t, she was an avid animal lover, fantastic DJ, and a loyal friend. She was also the brains and muscle of the annual “Food for Fido” pet food drive. Sadly, we lost our dear sweet Carole Ann in 2021 to cancer. To honor her vibrant spirit, we're bringing her pet food drive back and making it bigger! She loved to say, “Go big or go home”. We have invited local animal rescues and shelters to bring some adoptable furbabies that need a new loving family. Let's find some homes for some critters :)

Join us on June 29th from 12pm-4pm at Blue Lake Casino Hotel for a pet adoption & fundraiser event. We'll be outside next to the Sapphire Palace. All proceeds from the gate and a 50/50 raffle will be split among 3 totally awesome local animal rescues: Redwood Pals Rescue, Companion Animal Foundation, and Karuna Rescue.

The entry fee is a suggested donation of $10 (CASH ONLY, kids under 12 are free) OR a pet food donation. Each entry comes with one raffle ticket to win a cool basket of rad stuff like a one-night stay at the Inn of the Lost Coast, a gift certificate to the Hatchet House Arcata and more. The more you donate, the more raffle tickets you receive!! That means more chances to win!

What else are we doing, you may ask? Lots of fun stuff!! A total of six animal shelters & rescues will be joining us along with some lovable and adoptable pets looking for a forever family. Which is the main event. However, since we are asking you to drive all the way to Blue Lake, we figured we’d add some other things to do. Such as food trucks! And a dunk tank! Even a pet costume contest! Vendors will be slinging their wares. The Bloodmobile is making the trek. AND…. There will be a piggy kissing booth!!! A Banjo Makes 3 will give us the soundtrack for the day and all four of our radio stations will be broadcasting live! Did we mention beer? Blue Lake Casino will set up a beer garden to quench that summertime thirst.

The pet costume contest is worth mentioning again. The winning pet’s human gets a one-night stay at Ocean View Hot Tubs in Shelter Cove. That’s swanky! And of course, glory. You win glory and the satisfaction of knowing your pet was the best dressed. Second and third place win stuff too! Contest happens at 2pm at the mini stage next to the radio booth.

Come out to sunny Blue Lake on Saturday, June 29th and let’s honor Carole Ann in the best way we know how: The 1st Annual Carole’s Critters.
