SPRINGVILLE – Robin Compton’s “Five Alive Husky Rescue” event scheduled for this Saturday has been canceled due to inclement weather in the forecast.

Compton will host a bonfire at 110 Knotting Hill Drive in Springville now on Saturday, July 31,2021 at 6:00 p.m. Compton will be providing hamburgers and hotdogs for those guests that attend. All provided food and drinks are free to the public, however, Compton is seeking donations to help with the family of dogs care. Thus far Compton has already spent approximately $3,000 to ensure the dogs were provided shelter and provisions to include a cage, kennel, cooling room, straw, and cedar chips.
