Lakeland Animal Welfare Society (LAWS) is proud to announce the opening of 9 Lives Boutique, a new high-end resale shop with quite a pedigree, at 270 Broad St., Lake Geneva, 248-3122.

Several not-for-profit organizations across the country enjoy the partnership and success of aligning with a resale-type store. The goal of the boutique is to enhance the short- and long-term fundraising capacity of the Lakeland Animal Shelter, 3551 State Road 67, Elkhorn, 723-3899.

This is the only animal shelter in Walworth County. It relies on donations for operating funds and is in the midst of a capital campaign to raise money for a new shelter. It is hoped that bargain hunters will choose to make 9 Lives Boutique a frequent shopping destination that will satisfy both the urge to shop and the need to support a vital part of their own community. One hundred percent of the profits will go directly to the Lakeland Animal Shelter.

Savvy shoppers will salivate over the treasures that can be found at 9 Lives Boutique. They specialize in antique and quality furniture, jewelry, high-end clothing and accessories, artwork and other home furnishings and are always looking for new or gently used items.

If you have items to donate, please contact Dana Patten at 248-3122 or e-mail dlpatten@wi.rr.com. Your donation is tax deductible
