Local children are scheduled to host a fundraiser for Pets In Need, the new operator of Palo Alto Animal Services, 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 6 at Shoup Park, 400 University Ave., Los Altos.
The event will feature sales of baked goods, clay sculptures and woven items, according to Eden Rose Murray, one of the young organizers.
The children hope to raise $200 for the shelter, which serves Los Altos, Los Altos Hills and Palo Alto.
“We think animals deserve all the care that they need,” Eden said.
Organizers said they also will accept donations.
