Currently, the Humane Society provides shelters for lost, abandoned, neglected or abused animals at the homes of members. The expenses for the care of the animals are paid out of the pockets of the members, according to society President Ramona Hamilton.
Hamilton, a long-time animal activist, with a background in greyhound rescue, discussed the schedule of events.
At 1 P.M. at the Renaissance Stage on Main Street, the humane society will host a dog show. Categories include largest dog, smallest dog, best costume, dog and owner look-alike and all around best in show. The society asks that children be accompanied by adults, and dogs to be leashed and with current immunizations. The entry fee for participation is a $5 donation to the cause. Winners will be awarded ribbons for first, second and third prize. The best-in-show winner will be given a trophy.
The Lakeland Jamboree will be the venue for the remainder of the day’s events. With activities commencing at 8 A.M., raffles, a silent auction, bake sales, yard sales, refreshments, face painting and live entertainment will be offered to generate funds for the society. The Jamboree is providing its facilities free of charge for the event.
