RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - People can get in free to the North Carolina Executive Mansion this weekend as long as they bring something to help pets in shelters.

Gov. Pat McCrory and first lady Ann McCrory are inviting people to an open house Saturday. Admission is a donation for pets, such as chew toys, food and dog collars or leashes or a donation for the shelters, such as paper towels, bleach and laundry detergent.

A McCrory spokesman says shelters that receive the donations will be chosen after the event.

Gates will open at 10 a.m. Saturday and the open house will run until 11:30 a.m. An RSVP is required by Thursday at: https://governor.nc/pets .
