Lockup event raises funds for animal shelter

ROCKPORT, Maine — Sixteen brave souls were “locked-up” in the Camden-Rockport Animal Rescue League’s homemade dog pound at the Cellardoor Vineyard on Oct. 24. Not only were there scheduled incarcerations, but some not-so-innocent bystanders at the event were arrested for various crimes as well.

The well-attended event raised approximately $7,500 for the Camden Rockport Animal Rescue League. Thanks to the two lead sponsors, Peter Ott’s and the Cellardoor Winery, prisoners and loyal friends of CRARL enjoyed food and wine in a beautiful setting.

The funds raised will help feed and care for the dogs and cats at the shelter. CRARL expressed gratitude to additional sponsors that helped to make the event a success: EBS, Smith and May, Allen Agency, Phi Home Designs, Clean Bee Laundry, French and Brawn, and Party Fundamentals.

To find out how you can help support Camden-Rockport Animal Rescue League, go to or visit the facility 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. at 146 Camden St. in Rockport.
