Registration is open for a charity golf tournament that could help support major expansion plans for Animal House Shelter in Huntley.

The event, known as the Putt for Paws Charity Golf Tournament, will be from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 1 at the Elgin Country Club, 2575 Weld Road.

Ashley Feck, Animal House Shelter’s fundraising director, said this will be the shelter’s biggest fundraiser of the year.

Proceeds will help to expand the shelter’s services to include a low-cost veterinary clinic, which will offer vaccinations, microchipping and spays and neuters. Feck said the expansion also would about double the shelter’s animal capacity.

“We’re hoping to have the vet clinic in the next couple of years,” Feck said. “It’s not something we can do overnight.”

At this time, Feck said, there is not an estimated cost or fundraising goal for the project. However, by opening its own low-cost clinic, the shelter can increase awareness of its foster programs and other services. The tournament also will feature raffles, games and a silent auction. Several dogs available for adoption will be at the event.

Reservations can be made at ahsgolf.app.rsvpify.com, and they must be made by Sept. 21. The cost is $250 a person or $900 a foursome. For information, contact Feck at ashley@animalhouseshelter.com or 847-361-1886.
