Mickey Finn's Brewery and Pet Factory presented a check for $6,000 to Save-A-Pet, an organization providing safe haven for abused, neglected, injured, or lost animals as well as those that have escaped euthanasia, leading to the successful adoption of over 40,000 dogs and cats.

The money was raised from the creation and sale of Mickey Finn's Pet Factory Belgium Wit at Mickey Finn's Brewery from September to November with a matching donation from Pet Factory. It is the second year in a row Mickey Finn's Brewery and Pet Factory have raised money for Save-A-Pet.

Mickey Finn's Brewery's is Lake County's largest microbrewery. Pet Factory is the leading manufacturer of USA sourced and made rawhide products and a leader in globally sourced rawhide products.

Brian Grano, owner of Mickey Finn's Brewery, and Tom Miller, owner of Mundelein-based Pet Factory presented the check to Amy Knudsen, vice president, board of directors, Save-A-Pet, Lake County, Grayslake.

"Save-A-Pet, its residents, volunteers, staff, and board of directors couldn't be more appreciative of the generous support provided by Mickey Finn's Brewery and Pet Factory," said Knudsen. "Supportive business owners like Brian Grano and Tom Miller help Save-A-Pet save the lives of countless animals."

"We are happy to make this donation to Save-A-Pet in support of the good they do for animals in distress," Miller said.

"We owe many thanks to our loyal and discerning customers as once again we have proof you can drink beer and do good at the same time," Grano said.

Pet Factory is one of the few remaining U.S. manufacturers to actually use USA raised cattle hides and manufacture rawhide chews in the United States.

Mickey Finn's Brewery is at 345 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Libertyville (one block south of its previous location).
