Dog Days of Summer
By Jeanine Kahr
The Marshall County Humane Society in Holly Springs, in our efforts to save more homeless and starving animals, would like to invite you to our annual Dog Days of Summer Silent Auction that will be held on Friday evening, August 3, at the VFW in Holly Springs, 5:30 to 9 p.m.
We have many exciting items this year, such as golf packages, prints, tools, trips to Dauphin Island, Ala., and Mountain Harbor Resort Spa at Lake Ouachita, Ark., a custom decorated dog house, designer pottery and casino stays. We, of course, will also have many dog, cat and horse accessories.
We are excited to have as our entertainment this year, the very popular local singer/songwriter Shannon McNally. If you haven’t heard her music yet, don’t miss this event.
There will be many door prizes and some great food, so save the date! Everyone always enjoys this event.
And it will help us to save more of the many needy animals in Marshall County.
