Smith County Humane will host their Inaugural “Paws-itively Magical Winter Ball,” Saturday Dec
4th, 2021 at the National Guard Armory located at 101 Transport Drive Gordonsville, TN 38563. Reserved Seats are $50. The event is a formal event and will feature dinner, drinks, dancing, a silent and live auction, Great Christmas Photo Opportunities, all while raising money for the programs of Smith County Humane and Animals in need in the county.
Smith County Humane has recently expanded their services and raised the income requirement threshold to help even more residents and animals in Smith county, and we are hoping this event is a huge success and helps jump start our organization to be able to serve even more animals and low income residents who love their animals but can’t afford some of their care. We are also working to house stray animals, utilizing volunteers and fosters, since we do not have a shelter, as well as investigating animal welfare concerns in the county and advocating for those animals suffering. Smith County Humane is currently spending between $3000-5000 a month at the vet serving animals in need and the community. There are currently over 100 animals between cats and dogs in need in the county, but the only way we can continue helping is to increase our funding.
“We encourage local residents and businesses to get involved with this event, states Shenia Pellum, Smith County Humane’s President, and if you can not attend, there are other options available to get involved including featuring your beloved rescue’s photo with our special red carpet recognition and on our website, or becoming a friend or supporter of the Ball.” Tickets are available, as well as other ways to be involved, at www.smithcountytnhumane.com/ball. This is a limited seating event.
