A new compilation CD that includes Heidi’s song, “My Old Cat,” has just been released. It includes a collection of songs about people’s pet dogs and cats, and is being sold across the country to benefit animal rescue organizations selected by the artists who donated their songs. Heidi chose the Wallowa County Humane Society to receive this benefit, and she will be performing some songs and signing CDs during their open house on May 6 at 11:00 am. Come look at the kitties and puppies available to adopt, and purchase a CD that helps fund their care! Info: wallowacountyhumanesociety.org
