Here is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Our family has adopted several cats and dogs from the local Humane Society over the years. Knowing that I made their life much better and seeing their love for me has shown me the importance of pet adoption. Have any of you adopted your pets from the local shelter? What was your experience? I truly think that animals know when they are being rescued. Not only does it change their life, but it enriches the life of the adopter as well. Millions of companion animals in shelters across America are just waiting for a special home like yours!
Allen Stephenson, founder of Southern Tide, will be participating in Pet Project Runway to help raise money for the Greenville Humane Society (GHS). GHS is the largest no-kill shelter in the southeast offering low cost spay/neuter clinics. As a not for profit facility, the cost to run GHS is $10/day per animal. By visiting http://www.petprojectrunway.com NOW and voting for Allen Stephenson, your minimum $10 donation will help animals in need.
Pet Project Runway takes place this Thursday, April 19th beginning at 6:00 PM with a cocktail reception. General admission tickets to attend the event can be purchased for $50 and your donation can be credited to Allen's fundraising efforts.
Allen will be escorting Maggie, a 4-year old Australian cattle dog/blue tick coon hound mix, available for adoption at the Greenville Humane Society. Maggie is housetrained and knows commands such as “sit” and “stay”.
Here is scoop on Maggie:
She is a 4 year old Australian cattle dog/Blue Tick coon hound mix. She is already house-trained and knows how to “sit” and “stay." She is laid back and is very sweet and even tempered, but can sometimes be timid. She has a good nose and loves to walk on leash and explore. She has already lived with other dogs and is very friendly. She is also good with children.
If you are interested in adopting Maggie, please call the Greenville Humane Society at (864) 242-3626.
