Humane Society dinner/silent auction set for Feb. 23 in HamCo

Jasper — The Hamilton Humane Society will be hosting their First Annual Dinner/Silent Auction on Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Jasper Civic Center, according to Director Katie Rooney.

Rooney said she has two roles, one as director of North Florida Paws Spay/Neuter Clinic and another as director of Hamilton Humane Society.

“Since coming to Hamilton County, my husband and I built the North Florida Paws Spay/Neuter Clinic, and in the five years we’ve been in operation, we’ve done over 12,000 spay and neuters,” said Rooney.

A significant number of those, she said, were for Hamilton County.

“We’re real pleased that in these times we’ve been able to survive this long,” she told the Hamilton County Board of County Commissioners at their Feb. 5 meeting.

Rooney thanked the commissioners for their assistance when she first started the spay/neuter clinic.

Commissioner Randy Ogburn told Rooney, “We so appreciate what you’re doing.”

“It’s been great,” said Rooney. “Super kudos to Danny Johnson (county coordinator),” she said. “He’s been really, really working with us.”

The newly formed Hamilton Humane Society in Jennings consists of dedicated volunteers who share a love of animals. Their objective is to promote a compassionate, humane and safe community for people and animals through advocacy, education, and support.

“We’re getting a lot of programs started, but like everyone else we need funds,” Rooney said.

In order to raise funds the Hamilton Humane Society will be hosting their first annual dinner/silent auction on Saturday, Feb. 23 beginning at 6 p.m. at the Jasper Civic Center.

Tickets are $10 and you will be treated to a complete roast beef dinner, while enjoying music, vying for door prizes and silently bidding on over 100 new and collectible auction items.

For more information or to purchase tickets, please call 386-938-4092. You can also visit their website at www.hamiltonhumanesociety.net or like them on Facebook.
