AUBURN – The Greater Androscoggin Humane Society will hold its fourth annual “Eat for Pete” event at several area restaurants on Wednesday, Jan. 28.

Pete, like so many other animals that seek safety at the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, recently found himself homeless. His aimless search for a warm and secure place left him cowering in snowy doorsteps and sifting through trashcan scraps for his supper. Last week Pete was found and brought to the shelter, where he was able to take a bath, eat some supper and have a warm, soft place to sleep.

Several restaurants will donate 10 percent of their food sales to help care for Pete, and the many other homeless animals just like him, at the shelter.

Rolly’s Diner and The Slamma, both on Mill Street in Auburn, and Just Joans and Manic Designs and Java Café, both on Lisbon Street in Lewiston, will participate during lunch between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

The following restaurants are participating during dinner between 5 and 9 p.m.:

Lewiston: Davinci’s Eatery, Bates Mill; Governor’s Restaurant, Lisbon Street; Marco’s Restaurant, Lisbon Street; Fast Breaks, Lisbon Street; and Subway, Main Street.

Auburn: Gipper’s Sports Grill, Center Street; Sam’s Italian Sandwich Shop, Center Street; Black Watch Pub, Court Street; The Fishery, Center Street; Rolandeau’s Restaurant, Washington Street; Park City Pizza, Center Street; Georgio’s Pizza and Donut Shop, Minot Avenue; and Subway, Center Street.

Turner: Northland Steakhouse and Youly’s Family Restaurant, both on Route 4.

The Humane Society provides a safe haven for approximately 3,600 sick, homeless and abused animals in the greater Androscoggin area a year. The primary support for the shelter comes from fund-raising events and donations of residents.

The Humane Society is located at 3312 Hotel Road. If interested in volunteering at the shelter or adopting an animal call 783-2311 or visit the Web at
