‘Give our beach pets a chance’
The South Pacific County Humane Society (SPCHS) thanks everyone who attended our “Give Our Beach Pets A Chance” medical fundraising event. As all cats and dogs before they are adopted are current on vaccinations, spayed/neutered, and receive medical care, medical expenses represent a significant part of our budget. A special thank you to the Peninsula Moose Lodge 2362 in Ocean Park for providing the event venue. Many thanks to the businesses and individuals who contributed silent auction items. Thank you to the Depot Restaurant, Lost Roo Restaurant, North Beach Tavern, Jack’s County Store, and Okie’s IGA for their food contributions — everything was excellent.
