Birthday benefit held in honor of Chloe Taylor

The family of a Hurley teenager killed in a car accident last year celebrated her birthday with a benefit for something near and dear to her heart.

Sixteen-year-old Chloe Taylor always loved animals. Her first job was at a pet grooming business where she spent every day loving on dogs and cats.

That’s why her family chose to partner with the Jackson County Animal Shelter for what would have been Chloe’s 17th birthday.

Animals were available for adoption, people brought in dog and cat food, and also bought bracelets and key chains to raise money for the shelter.

A birthday wouldn’t be complete without cake, decked out in purple for Chloe. Natalie Taylor, Chloe’s mother, said, “It feels amazing. I mean, all the outpouring we’ve had. Several people were here right at ten, the shelters coming out. This makes my heart very happy. To see everybody here that loved her and cared about her.”

All ten animals brought out to the event found homes.

If you would still like to donate, make a donation to the Jackson County Animal Shelter and tell them it is for Chloe Taylor.
