Giving dogs and cats a ‘new leash on life’

DUNCAN — Stephens County Humane Society’s most recent Yappy Hour on Friday featured a St. Patrick’s Day theme with green drinks and more. The organization raised about $2,500 and introduced five dogs who were about to be on their way to Colorado to their new home.

The SCHS’s next event is the Shelter Shower in April, where it will be “raining cats and dogs.” This event gives SCHS supporters the chance to donate items to help out the animals who are in the shelter.
“We have the best supporters in the world and we know you understand how critical our fundraisers are in our work to provide happy, healthy animals in a safe, secure and pleasant environment,” said Patti Whitaker, SCHS event chair. “Through your support, you are part of the solution. You are making a difference in giving homeless dogs and cats a ‘new leash on life.’”

No. It's better in the summer cause kids are out of school.
Yes. More shoppers would come during nice fall weather.
Either time is fine.
