Purchase a paw; support the shelter


Business and places of employment can participate in the fundraiser for the Humane Society of Jackson County as volunteers work toward an animal shelter for the community.

During the month of June, the Raise the Woof campaign is hosting a Paw Print Fundraiser in honor of Adopt-A-Shelter Cat month.

“We are asking local businesses to sell our preprinted Paw Prints for $1 and in return give their customer a Raise the Woof brochure,” said Claibourne Jordan, Shelter Campaign Director of the Humane Society of Jackson County.

“This is much more than a fundraiser – it will help to build awareness about the animal shelter project,” said Jordan.

 The business that sells the most Paw Prints or makes the biggest donation will be awarded a prize. Also, businesses will be promoted through HSJC’s facebook page (www.facebook.com/HSJacksonCounty). With more than 805 “likes” on its page, a business should benefit from participating in this fundraiser.

 If your business or place of employment would like to participate, contact Jordan at 706-424-4607. Visit www.raisethewoof.weebly.com or www.hsjc.com
