At the Lee County Humane Society, we've been busy caring for our animals and planning fun opportunities for this Fall and holiday season. Our Fall plans include upcoming adoption events at the Rocky Top Pumpkin Patch and Chewacla State Park, and an amazing virtual walk/fundraiser, Strut Your Mutt!
Rocky Top Pumpkin Patch
We're excited to announce that we'll be bringing adoptable dogs to the Rocky Top Pumpkin Patch on Saturday, October 17th! Our events had been on hold due to hot temperatures and COVID-19 preventing us from safely having indoor adoption events.
However, the Rocky Top Pumpkin Patch provides the outdoor space needed for a social distancing-friendly event! We will be there between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m, and we hope to see you there! The shelter will be closed for adoptions that day for the event. For the safety of our staff, volunteers, and the public, please wear a mask when approaching our table. We will have hand sanitizer available to use.
The Rocky Top Pumpkin Patch is located at 2910 Lee Road 145 in Salem and offers plenty of activities for the whole family. Their Facebook page lists "hayrides, a petting zoo, hay bale mountain, duck races, corn crib, concessions stand and so much more" among the attractions that they'll have available this year!
Strut Your Mutt Day is October 24th!
In addition to the upcoming adoption event, LCHS is participating in Strut Your Mutt Day, a national event to raise funds and awareness for homeless animals, which takes place on October 24th.
As LCHS Outreach and Development Coordinator Sidney Hancock shared, "We at LCHS are proud to be part of the Best Friends Strut Your Mutt Day celebration happening across the country. We are working with Best Friends towards the goal of taking this nation no-kill by 2025. By working together, we can accomplish great things in the nation, and right here at home for our dogs and cats. We love our community, and we know you do, too, so help us take action for the pets and people in our town."
