Applebee’s in Zanesville served-up breakfast Saturday morning for a change…and a good cause


It was all for the 4th annual "Paws for Pancakes" fundraiser. The Muskingum County Animal Shelter invited the community to enjoy an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast with all proceeds benefiting the shelter.

"It’s 100% profit for the shelter," explained Executive Director Larry Hostetler. "Applebee’s provides everything. The restaurant, the food, everything. We don’t have to pay a dime to hold the fundraiser."

Saturday’s goal was to raise $1,000. Each breakfast cost $5 and was served to the customers by volunteers, staff and board members of the animal shelter.

"It’s fun you know, a lot of the time as board members we’re used to being together in meetings so it’s kind of a fun environment for us to come out and spend some time together outside the shelter," said Board president of Animal Shelter Society Stephanie Hill.
