Check Presented To Animal Shelter


BY ANN FORREST WATKINS

  While in Lexington, I saw a very interesting mock-up of a Veterinarian Clinic that was perfect for a child to enjoy.    My mind started working on how that could be used to fund raise for our fur baby friends.  I purchased it and immediately decided to have a drawing and make the cost of the donation to be reasonable.  So, Facebook, there I went.    I offered donation tickets for $5 each making all the proceeds go to the Pawmetto Lifeline, a no-kill shelter that rescues, feeds and houses pets - dogs and cats.  As is this county’s response, I had $250 and time to draw a winner. 
  In the meantime, Hollywood Elementary School had agreed to have a fund raiser for pets by collecting “Dimes for Doggies.”  You can imagine how much change they had to get (and of course lots of bills) to end their November Thankful for Pets campaign with (DRUM ROLL) $750.    You know where this is going.  All we needed to do was to call Jack at Pawmetto and let him know what we had for them.  He was overwhelmed and wanted a photo shoot for their newsletter.  The monies were used immediately to cover surgery for a couple of animals that were in dire need of help.
  Earlier in the year, SPS and SES had participated in a fund raiser for “Pennies for Paws” and together raised close to $500.  This was donated to the rescue here in Saluda County at the time. 
  I am humbled by all of the support this town can give when asked.....no politics, no backslapping, just for the cause.  Thank you sooooooooooo much. 
  Please do your main part in reducing the pet population by having your animals neutered and spayed.
