MS Critterz Inaugural Critter Crawl on the Square to Bring Awareness to Their No-Kill Mission for Oxford and Lafayette County
The Inaugural Critter Crawl is coming up May 4 and will start at The Growler at 2 pm. The group will then travel to The Corner, St. Leo’s Lounge, Funky’s, Rooster’s, Round Table, and finish out the day at Harrison’s 1810. This years theme is “Critters” so come dressed as your favorite critter. There will be prizes given away for Most Creative and Best Dressed costume.
There will also be prizes given away at a few of the bars for miscellaneous things—so make sure you’re up-to-date on all of your animal trivia and local bar facts. Wristbands are $20 and you can get your very own Critter Crawl t-shirt for $20. All proceeds will go to help the homeless animals of Oxford and Lafayette County.
MS Critterz event organizer Caitlan Covington stated, “We’re really excited about this event. Since we are a new organization, we have been trying to find events for the community that people will look forward to for years to come. We have had so much fun planning this event and can’t wait to see how the community reacts to it.”
When asked what the funds raised from this event will go towards, Caitlan said, “We have many projects planned in the coming months. We are hoping to make some additions to Quarantine, purchase more puppy banks, put the finishing touches on our new Free-Roaming Cat Room, purchase a size-appropriate washer, a shipping container for storage, and a desktop computer for our adoption/transport office, and paint the shelter to just name a few.”
MS Critterz started off their contract with big goals to say the least, and they are certainly on track to reaching those! They have a number of transports that leave every month as well as many events throughout the year to promote adoption in the community as well as raising community awareness for Spay and Neuter.
