SEVIERVILLE (WATE) – The owners of a local blog donated $1,000 Friday to a Sevier County dog shelter.
The owners of HeySmokies.com dropped off the check Friday to Pets Without Parents. The company had small donation boxes sitting inside Sevier County businesses for the last two months. The spare change from out-of-towners and locals is now being put to good use.
“This place does a lot of good work on not a lot of money. We’re happy to give them $1,000, but it’s really a drop in the bucket for their needs. It takes about $10,000 a month to run the shelter, so every little bit helps and we’re just happy to be able to provide a little bit for them,” said HeySmokies.com owner Kelly Mott.
Mott says they have another 50 donation boxes and hope to have area businesses take part in the fundraiser.
