Humane Society of Elmore County News – 25 Jun ‘12
For ten years now our shelter has been the lucky beneficiary of the generosity of The Predators Motorcycle Association & they exceeded all expectations on the 10th Anniversary of Cruisin’ fer Critters by raising OVER $11,000 for our shelter! We are truly grateful to each and every member of The Predators, all the incredible Sponsors, Sundown East & Papa T’s Sports Bar, MaMa SaiD band, and the huge number of riders that came out to join in the fun. There were easily 150 bikes registered for the Saturday ride and it was just an incredible day of fun, friendship and fund raising for our shelter and our animals. There are more people to thank than we have room for in this update (we will list all the wonderful sponsors on our website when we get the final list) but we are simply thrilled that so many people think our shelter and our animals are worth all the hard work that everyone put into this awesome event! We also appreciate the great media coverage and will share lots of great photos on our website and our Facebook page. As we posted on our signboard in front of our shelter: “Cruisin’ fer Critters ROCKS!”
A couple of weeks ago we were invited to the Autauga County Technology Center for the graduation of the 2012 MaGiC Camp which stands for “Mentoring a Girl in Construction.” This is a super week-long program under the auspices of the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) where teenage girls can learn about construction and how to build various items. Fourteen wonderful girls each built and painted wood dog houses and they donated all fourteen of these super cool dog houses to our shelter! It was truly wonderful to be part of their graduation ceremony and to load all these awesome dog houses which filled our truck AND horse trailer! We are in the process of photographing them and deciding how best to showcase them for purchase by the public to help raise funds for our shelter. So keep an eye on our website and Facebook for pictures of the dog houses, the young ladies who built them, and information as to how you can perhaps purchase or win one of these too cute dog houses. We are truly humbled that they thought of our shelter like this and can’t wait for everyone to see the great work they did!
We had fun at Sunday’s Volunteer Training and appreciate all who came to learn about our volunteer needs and how to help our shelter. We have a great opportunity this Saturday, 30 June, for those who want to help at our off-site adoptions as we will be at both the Montgomery PetSmart and the Montgomery PETCO with pets for adoption from noon – 4 pm. These off-site adoption events help greatly for those that may find coming to the shelter a bit overwhelming. So if you would like to volunteer for a couple of hours at either location please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Charline, at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 334-202-1381.
