Pancakes for pups

The Humane Society of Morgan County (HSMC) held its annual Pancake Supper fundraiser last week, raking in about $4500. The supper was held at the First United Methodist Church (FUMC) of Madison and drew about 250 people throughout the evening. All proceeds from the event go toward operational cost of the HSMC, a no-kill shelter.

“The supper went very well,” said Tim George, director of HSMC. “We are so grateful for the community’s help. We are funded solely through donations. We do not get any money from the government to do the work that we do.”

Farmview Market, Ingles, Main Street Vet and McDonald’s sponsored this year’s Pancake Supper.

“We cannot thank our sponsors enough,” said George.

According to the HSMC, the organization’s mission is “to save more animal lives by promoting adoptions of healthy, friendly companion animals obtained from the public and from over crowed animal control and other rescue facilities. Our goal is to provide the highest quality care and compassion to the animals entrusted into our care until such time as they are adopted. It is also our mission to measurably reduce the pet overpopulation numbers through the promotion of spay/neuter programs and community education.”

Currently, the HSMC has about 40 dogs and 30 cats up for adoption.

“We pull from the local animal control and help save these animals’ lives and get them adopted back out,” said George.

To support the HSMC, you can make a donation or volunteer your time.

“We can always use more donations and more volunteers,” said George.

The HSMC is located at 1170 Fairground Road in Madison. Hours of operation are Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the HSMC at (706) 343-9977.
