Humane Society seeking volunteers, donations
The Humane Society of Johnson County is looking for community volunteers and donors.
Ways to help include volunteering, fostering animals, becoming a member of the Humane Society, providing supplies for the organization’s wish list or making a donation.
The nonprofit group is seeking donations of hard-sided animal carriers for cats and dogs, which may be new or used in good condition. These carriers are needed to transport animals for vet care or adoption events.
Donations are being sought for the Dudley Fund, which
provides money for surgeries for homeless animals, such as for:
Channing, a Persian cat who came to the society after being found wandering, badly matted and in poor health due to malnutrition. The vet says he will make a full recovery but needs dental surgery to aid in that recovery.
Cindy, a small dog with two bad knees who is now in the society’s care. Surgery on her knees will make her pain-free and ready to lead a happy life in a permanent, loving home.
The surgeries are expensive, and help is needed to aid Channing, Cindy and other animals. All donations to The Dudley Fund will help the humane society continue to assist these animals.
Donations can be sent to the Humane Society of Johnson County, 3827 N. Graham Road, Franklin, IN 46131. Donations also can be made online at www.hsjc.org.
