Tails wagging after shelter gala

Dan McBride, DVM, president of the board of directors of Hill Country Humane Society Board addresses the animal shelter's first fund-raising gala that was held Sept. 17 at the Hill Country Hall in Buchanan Dam.

The Hill Country Humane Society (HCHS) Board of Directors reports being “thrilled” with the success of its inaugural Wags and Whiskers Gala on Sept. 17.

"We reached our goal with the generous support of our members, gala guests and other supporters throughout the community," said vice president Lynn Bishop. "We now have the necessary funds to pursue the creation of our in-house spay and neuter program.

“HCHS wants to publicly thank everyone who lent their support to this effort.”

“Our success is due to the generous involvement of the community,” said gala chairwoman Mitzi Logan, “It truly was a community event.”

All gala proceeds are dedicated to the HCHS spay/neuter program and to equip and staff an on-site operating theater. The shelter is dedicated to spay and neuter as a primary solution to reducing the number of homeless and unwanted animals.
