The month of February has been kind to the Marshall County Humane Society. It has become customary for the MCHS to have their annual Baked Potato and Salad Bar during the month. This is one of their biggest fundraisers and is something that everyone looks forward to attending.
It has also become a tradition for the residents of Miller’s Assisted Living to declare the month of February their “Pennies for Paws” month. The residents and staff collect loose change during the month to donate to the humane society. They also make homemade pet treats which they sell and give the proceeds to the society. Miller’s went a step further this year and also offered a Valentine Luncheon Buffet. Anyone who brought an item for the MCHS’s wish list was able to eat from the buffet free of charge.
Entertainer Quentin Flagg got involved in the act of giving to the humane society during his Valentine Concert. He urged all of his fans to bring a wish list item for the society as well. Flagg and his family have a real passion for animals and they appreciate all the Marshall County Humane Society does in the area.
If you did not get a chance to donate to the MCHS they will receive donation at any time throughout the year. Their wish list includes: stamps, paper towel, bleach, brand name puppy and dog food, brand name kitten and cat food, scoopable litter, laundry detergent, old blankets for bedding, and leashes and collars. For your convenience, donations for the shelter can be dropped off at the office of Stevens Travis and Fortin across from the post office on Garro Street. A volunteer there will see that they are delivered to the shelter.
