Galax and Hillsville, as well as Grayson and Carroll counties, seem to be bustling with improvements.
There are wonderful new water parks scheduled, a new prison that brought new jobs, and a proactive New River Land Trust that will protect this beautiful part of the country.
However, we must not forget that local organizations such as the Twin County Humane Society desperately need your help.
The society is a small but mighty group of volunteers that actually saves our tax dollars by rescuing highly adoptable animals from the local animal shelter.
It recently partnered with the City of Galax to continue offering free and/or low-cost spay and neuter surgeries to the public.
This is an organization that all people of The Twin Counties should be proud of. All of its rescued animals, mostly dogs, come from the local animal shelter. The society and shelter are in constant contact and work together to reduce the euthanasia rate at our local shelter.
With “puppy season” quickly approaching, there will not be enough space at the shelter for all of the animals being surrendered by their owners. In order to save more animals, dogs in particular, the society needs to purchase (or have donated) more 10 by 10 dog kennels in order to expand the foster base.
Perhaps you have a used outdoor kennel that you are no longer using. The society will be happy to take it!
If you cannot volunteer your time, and cannot foster a dog or cat, please consider making a donation so that we can purchase these kennels and save more lives. Please indicate on the check line that the donation is for purchase of a kennel. No donation is too small and every little bit helps.
