July 7– Ice cream and dogs – what better combination?
Hardin County Animal Services and Kroger are joining up to host a large-scale adoption and fundraiser event Saturday, July 9.
The event will take place at Kroger, 775 Pickwick St., from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“It’s going to be our largest-scale adoption event to date. We plan to have at least 20 dogs on site to meet prospective adopters,” said Tonni Shirley, event coordinator.
“We are even having a dog wash the day before to get them looking – and smelling – their best.”
Maggie Moo’s Ice Cream from Jackson will also be joining the fun. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the animal shelter.
“We will have HCAS t-shirts and ice cream for sale. The proceeds will help support the animals in our care,” said Shirley. “Most importantly, though, we are looking for quality homes for our dogs.”
