Don’t miss the Marshall County Humane Society’s upcoming event, “Dog Days Goes Country.” We have many exciting collectible items for auction, plus paintings, antiques, tools, trips, dinners, neat dog and cat accessories and many others.
We are excited to have Donna Wolf, a Memphis favorite, entertain us with her fiddling and violin music. She has performed at The Orpheum Theatre, Peabody Hotel, at private events for local CEOs and many assisted living and nursing facilities.
Also offered at the event is a wine tasting table sponsored by Glazer’s of Mississippi and a delightful assortment of food by Chef Michael Pratt.
Come join us for a funfilled evening, which will help us to continue to assist the homeless and neglected animals of Marshall County.
