Animal Shelter booth sees record crowds at Old Timer’s Day Festival

animalshelterBetween Sept. 15- 18, the Animal Shelter booth at the annual Old Timer’s Day Festival in Peebles received record numbers of visitors and generated over $900 in funds for the homeless dogs, cats, horses, and other companion animals of Adams County.
The reason for the success of the organization was due in large part to the generosity of Shelter supporters Tim Newman and the Walmart Super Center, who donated funds for an LG 43″ TV, and other donors who contributed items for a pet goodie basket to raffle. The lucky winners of the raffle items were Mary Rhoads and Kim McCann.  The Animal Shelter also provided the prizes for winners of the Festival’s Pet Parade contest.
The Animal Shelter, which is located in West Union near Walmart, is run by the not-for-profit group Humane Society of Adams County, which is not associated with any other local or national organization.
With the exception of a part-time Humane Agent working out of the Shelter, whose wages are paid by county funds, the budget to operate the Animal Shelter relies entirely on private donations and grants.
The Animal Shelter provides temporary housing for homeless pets, a monthly low-cost dog and cat sterilization clinic, humane investigation services for the county, and pet food to owners in need.
Reservations are being taken now for the Humane Society’s annual Howl-O-Ween Dinner and Auction on Saturday, Oct. 22 at the GE Park Pavilion. Please reserve your tickets today by calling (937) 544-8585.
