The Dodge County Small Animal Building Committee has raised the roof on a new building at the Dodge County Fairgrounds for small animal projects which includes goats, poultry and rabbits. The committee is working towards raising the last $40,000 to complete the building.

There are several fundraising opportunities to help finish this great project. First is the frozen food fundraiser which starts mid February and ends March 5th.  A variety of bulk pack frozen foods are available for pre-order, stock your freezer and support a great project. Print and complete the Dodge County Small Animal Frozen Food Sale form and mail to Beth Wollin, N954 Cty Rd R, Watertown, WI 53098 by March 5th. If you are unable to print or need more copies contact Sally Schoenike at 920-386-3790.  Food orders must be picked up on Tuesday, March 19th (at the Fairgrounds) and must be paid in full at time of pick up by cash or check made payable to Dodge County Small Animals Project.

Following the Food Sale the committee is planning the 2nd Annual Trivia Night on April 6th at 5:00pm at the Dodgeland High School. They are looking for teams of eight for Trivia Night — Print and complete the Small Animal Building Fundraiser Trivia Night Team Registration form.  Send completed forms before March 22nd to Sarah Nehls at W5956 Prospect Road, Horicon, WI 53032 or [email protected]. Last year, there was 35 teams and fun was had by all. The plan is to double the teams this year at Trivia Night!

This summer the committee will be helping John Deere with their Anniversary Celebration July 25-28 at the Dodge County Fairgrounds. They have agreed to help with set up prior to the event, taking care of garbage detail and other tasks during the show as well as take down. John Deere will make a nice size contribution to the Small Animal Building Project in return for this assistance.  Anyone interested in donating their time to support the small animal building committee should contact Sarah Nehls.

The building committee appreciates any help you and your family can give us to help raise funds for the new building.

Thank you,
