Humane Society Announces Winners

As the 2016 Great Darke County Fair came to an end, the Darke County Humane Society pulled the two winners of the fair raffle at PAWS Bingo Hall on Aug 31st.

First Place Winner, Jan Vogt, won the Coleman Rolling Cooler and Blue Rhino Tailgate Grill. Second Place Winner, Diana Barr, won the Kobalt Tool Box filled with tools.

A very large thanks to Lowe’s in Greenville for helping with the cooler and toolbox, and also their continued support for our organization.

The money raised from the raffle, and other fair activities will be used in many ways to help the Humane Society. One of these would be the New Addition being built on the front of their building. This new area will have twelve indoor/outdoor dog runs, and the current dog area will be remodeled into a new cat room. This new addition will allow them to stay functioning at the high level they have been at for quite some time.

The Darke County Humane Society is taking donations to help with the expense of this endeavor and ALL donations are Tax Deductible. The entire organization is ran off of donations and fundraisers. They do not receive any tax or state dollars to operate. Their intake of animals are strays that need emergency veterinarian care and animals from abuse/neglect cases. In 2015 the Darke County Humane Society was able to help over 235 animals (Dogs, Cats, and Horses) and with a grant they were able to fix over 560 feral cats in the Southeast Portion of Greenville.

 Any size donation may be made to help with the new addition or any other of their projects. Donations can be made in person or sent to the Darke County Humane Society at 7053 N State Route 49 Greenville, Ohio 45331.
