The Bradford County Humane Society is throwing a celebratory dinner at Tomasso’s Golf Course and Restaurant on April 21, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. There will be drinks, a buffet dinner, and an auction featuring everything you need for spring, good company, and live music by Brian Murphy.
This event will celebrate all of the good things that happened at the Humane Society during the last year. Despite some inevitable frustrations and sadness, there is so much to celebrate.
In the past year, the Bradford County Humane Society continued to cherish the lost and abandoned pets of Bradford and Sullivan Counties and find them new loving homes. Last year the Humane Society also returned about 150 lost pets to their owners, and adopted out hundreds of cats and dogs (and rabbits, a pig and a pony) to homes that matched their needs; pets that were older or disabled, found gentle foster parents to love them. Big dogs like Haystack found families that were big enough and energetic enough to wear off their excess energy.
Although the Bradford County Humane Society receives all the stray and abused dogs and cats (and sometimes other animals) from both Bradford and Sullivan Counties, it has achieved the goal to be a “no kill” shelter. Pets received into the shelter may stay as long as necessary until they find the right family.
Some cats and dogs have remained at the shelter for years, but they will all finally find a home. Local veterinarians help keep the costs down, and help provide care to all the animals that arrive needing emergency and non-emergency care.
In the last few months, and with help from the local community, money was raised to establish a fund for Chirpie, a loving stray cat with a big purr and a mangled paw, so she could get the surgery she needed. (She is recovering extremely well).
The Bradford County Humane Society will now maintain a fund for similarly situated cats and dogs named after Chirpie (“Chirpie’s Fund”).
