Ice Maker Needed!

On April 7th my sissy Sarah turned 16. Every year sissy Sarah gets to pick what she wants to do for her birthday. Previous years she has either picked a small party of a few close friends or a mini vacation. Last year Ma took us girls to Nashville for a "girls getaway". This year sissy wanted to do something special since this was her sweet 16 party. 

Ma kept asking her what she wanted but sissy Sarah said she had a plan and would let her know when it was finalize. Ma pictured the bank machine shooting out money because when sissy says that it usually hits the pocketbook. 

Then one night on Facebook, ma got a invitation to a "sweet 16" pawty from sissy. When she clicked on the link to see what she was paying for , she was a little stunned. Sissy had planned a fundraiser pawty for all my fur friends at the Owensboro Humane Society. She had planned music, entertainment and had a huge guest list. The request was that every gift brought had to be something for the animals and the biggest request was money. Ma made a event photo to share so everyone that was invited could share with their friends. The public was invited. 
Dozer begged for people to come
With summer coming on my fur friends don't have air conditioning. In the mornings and early afternoons, they are put on tie outs while their kennels are being cleaned. They each have their own little pool to play and keep cool. 
They love their pools but pools can't be put in the kennels. 

Last year our ice maker constantly needed repair. Then this year we heard clunk, clunk , scooch, plunk and it was dead. The repairman came out , did some test and said it was not repairable. We have hobbled along for 2 yrs and  now we need a new one. The problem is the size we need cost about $2500! That is a lot of milk bone money for a Humane Society that runs on donations from the public only. 

Sissy Sarah's pawty raised $795.00 in cash and got donations of food, treats, office supplies and beds. But we need more money to buy the ice maker. With summers coming we need to get this ordered and fast. The days of 100 degree weather will be here soon. We use the ice in the water buckets to keep the water cool. If we don't add it , the water temperatures raise in the 80's and that isn't very refreshing.
