The 24-hour event featured Trine students playing video games, live-streamed on the internet to raise money and awareness for the shelter. Justin Young, class instructor, said about 50 students participated, and people logged online to watch a total of 146 hours of gaming. With Mills is Rex, a 2- to 3-year-old cattle dog mix, while a student holds Willow, a Russian blue hair domestic shorthair mix cat, about 1 year old. Both animals are available for adoption from the shelter.
