The City of Minden Concludes Successful Pet Mayor Election, Raises $21,695 for Animal Control Facility

The City of Minden is thrilled to announce the conclusion of its inaugural Pet Mayor Election. This fundraising event not only provided entertainment, but also contributed significantly to a noble cause. A remarkable total of $21,695 was raised for the construction of the City’s new animal control facility.

The Pet Mayor Election commenced with 48 smart and spunky candidates. After a spirited campaign period, the votes have been tallied, and we are delighted to introduce the newly-elected pet officials:

Pet Mayor: Maverick

Chief of Pawlice: Kimber

Fur Chief: BB

Pet Council Members: Jax, Archie Bullseye Collins, Raglee’, Bubble Ann “Bubbles”, and Tinkerbell “Tink”

The Collaring Ceremony honoring these pets will take place at the Minden Civic Center on Thursday, May 30, at 6:00 p.m. *Location change due to weather*

The City extends its heartfelt gratitude to all candidates, voters, and sponsors who made this event a success. Together, we are making a tangible difference in the lives of our furry companions.
