"RAISE THE WOOF "
HELP THE HUMANE SOCIETY OF DECATUR AND MACON COUNTY
HAVE A PERMANENT HOME
The Humane Society of Decatur And Macon County is hopeful the community will "Raise The Woof" by donating to help us reach our goal to provide a permanent home in our community to help homeless animals. The HSDMC needs to raise $225,000 to purchase a facility and remodel to accommodate visiting rooms for potentially adoptive families to meet and greet the pets for adoption, a much needed reception and office area, quarantine room, one additional cat room, new kennels for dogs and puppies, new tub, and, security video equipment. Any funds raised above the needed amount will go into a building maintenance fund.
Several fundraisers are being planned to help us reach our goal.
Our next fundraising event "Furry Friends Chili FUNraiser"will be
Saturday, October 18, 2014
11:00 AM to 5:00 PM
Fairview Park Large Pavilion
Mark your calendar for a day of fun in the park. This event is family oriented with games and activities for children. The "Rock of Ages" band is donating entertainment. Meal consisting of a bowl of chili, hot dog, chips, and drink will be served until food is gone for a cost of $8 for adults and $4 for children 10 and under. Chili is being donated by Ray's Chili of Decatur. There will be a silent auction with many fantastic items available, 50/50 drawing, raffles including a hand-stitched fall quilt, as well as other items for sale. ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO OUR BUILDING FUND.
