A huge thank you to the Krew of Salty Barkers for once again organizing a fun and fantastic Mardi Gras Barkus Parade.  Turn out was great and everyone, including the dogs, enjoyed the whole experience.  The Krew presented the Humane Society with a check for $1800.00. That money will go a long way in making sure dogs like Red, who come into the shelter in terrible condition, get the second chance they deserve.
Above is a picture of King Red with his owner.  Red weighs in at 109 lbs now and is obviously much loved and spoiled by his people.
Tickets to the first annual St. George Island brewfest are going quickly.  We don't want anyone to miss their opportunity to attend so we are strongly suggesting you go to and purchase your tickets today. Tickets won't be available the day of the event!
The Brewfest is to be held on Saturday, April 30th at Paddy's Raw Bar and Journeys of SGI.  More than 30 breweries will be represented and each with 2-3 taps.  That's a lot of taste testing!  There will also be food and live music to enjoy while you sample your way through the afternoon.
We encourage you to share this newsletter with family and friends who may want to join in the fun.  Remember, all proceeds benefit the Franklin County Humane Society!
Kitten season will soon be upon us and we want to remind all of you that our low cost spay/neuter program is still available to people in our county who can't otherwise afford to alter their pets.
For a $25.00 co-pay pets are spayed/neutered and receive a Rabies vaccine. If you or someone you know needs assistance getting their pet altered, please come to the shelter and get a voucher.  Let's continue our efforts of reducing the unwanted pet population in Franklin County!
Piper and her sister Cessna were picked up in Wakulla County before the holidays.  We "pulled" them from Wakulla Animal Control because  they were bursting at the seams and we had room to help.  We work with many other organizations in order to place our pets so when we can reach out to a neighboring shelter to help, we do.
Piper and Cessna were beautiful pointer mixes.  Both had chocolate masks and spots all over their white coats.  Both were social, happy, playful pups and we felt they would be adopted quickly.  We were sort of right.
Cessna was adopted within 2 weeks of her arrival but for some unknown reason, Piper wasn't.  There was much interest in her but no follow through.  We took her to the Oyster Cook-Off in January along with 5 other dogs and puppies.  It was there the family we had been waiting for found Piper.  They spent a lot of time with her both at the adoption booth and walking her around.  They were impressed at how well behaved she was and how social she was with people and other dogs.  They adopted.
We always say that when a highly adoptable dog stays in the shelter longer than we expect, it's because their person hasn't found them yet.  Getting our pets out to be seen at special events and festivals has proved to be a very effective way of introducing people to the pet they have been looking for.
Below is a picture of Piper with her people.  Ironically, she is back in Wakulla County, but this time in a loving home instead of a shelter.
