The Haven, an adoption guarantee animal shelter in Fairhope and Moo Che Che, a “Make It YoSelf” frozen yogurt bar, will be teaming up again for the second year on Thursday, August 2 to celebrate Spirit Day for The Haven. From 11am to 9pm at their Eastern Shore Plaza location (between Petsmart and Panera Bread), Moo Che Che will donate 20% of the sales before taxes to The Haven. Moo Che Che is a make it, weigh it, and pay it process that has a large following. “Moo Che Che is very excited to be partnering with The Haven again this year,” said owner Jason Balius, who, along with his wife Ashley, have held almost thirty spirit nights, mostly for local schools, since opening one year ago. “Last year was a great success as almost $300 was contributed from our sales with awareness being raised regarding The Haven’s mission of sheltering and placing cats and dogs without euthanization. We hope the community will attend our event and assist us in reaching our fundraising goals while enjoying treats of Frozen Yogurt, Sorbets, and toppings.”
All the proceeds that the Haven receives on August 2 will again go to their Queenie’s Fund, a special fund for severely abused cats and dogs. It was named in honor of Queenie, a black lab who resided at The Haven for nearly two years. Despite the tough life she endured prior to entering The Haven - which included having hot oil poured on her back - Queenie always had a great spirit. She was adopted in 2005 and for the rest of her life knew only love, comfort, and happiness. She passed away several years ago, but she will always be remembered by those who knew her.
Eating yummy yogurt and helpingThe Haven at the same time … a win-win for both organizations! If Queenie were still with us, her owner, Haven volunteer Marilyn Moen, would most likely let Queenie have a lick from a Moo Che Che creation, as she loved to eat!
