LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Annual Strike Out Suffering fundraiser took place Saturday.

Hosted by the Almost Home Humane Society, the event is aimed at raising funds to give animals a second chance after being injured.

Eventgoers received a shirt to wear while hitting the lanes.

The fundraiser offered raffle tickets for prizes. The society's goal was to raise $40,000 for the evening. Executive director Stacy Rogers said their success comes directly from events like these.

"We now place over 93 percent of the animals we see every year, and that is a direct result of Strike Out Suffering and the Injured Animal Fund," said Rogers. "We are able to treat every pet that we think has a chance at a good quality of life after treatment."

Saturday's event was held at Landmark Lanes in Lafayette.
