It's been a busy week.
Pet Valu in downtown Kincardine has donated $2,606 to Donna Coughlan of Allies for Alley Catz, a local cat rescue.

The money comes from April's Pet Appreciation Month in which the Kincardine store was number one in fund-raising. June 16, is "Manager in a Crate" Day.
Coughlan says the money received from Pet Valu will go toward paying half the cost to neuter two male cats and spay a female cat for local families that can't afford to keep the pets otherwise.
With 16 cats at her home, Coughlan can take no more animals, but continues to help find homes for stray cats .
Meanwhile, Malcolm Place Retirement Residence in Kincardine held a fund-raiser rummage sale Saturday morning, with a great turn-out despite the rain.
Held in the basement, the sale featured household goods, clothes, books and a variety of other items. The money raised goes to the Kincardine Relay for Life.
