LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Friends of the Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter are asking for help to provide funds for man's best friend.

The group will be hosting their third annual Boots, Buddies, and Barbeque. The event is a fundraiser that is used to raise money for the shelter's vet fund.

"It was born out of necessity for animals that were sick or injured coming into the shelter have access to medical care," organizer Molly James said. "In the past, sadly they, often had to be euthanized because the city did not have the funds."

The event will feature a dance, dinner, silent auction and raffle.

"There are too many items to name," James said. "We have over 60 items. We have a doghouse, we have various gift baskets. There is stuff for women and men on separate tables. There is stuff for everyone."

The event is March 11 and starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center. Tickets for the events are $15. They can be bought beforehand at Marco's Pizza or Grizzly's on first street. Tickets can also be bought at the door.
