Bow Wow Bash on Saturday

Published: Thursday, October 24, 2013 at 09:30 AM.

The Humane Society’s facility on 10th Street is a mecca for volunteers of all ages and backgrounds that help clean cages, do laundry, feed, walk and socialize with animals, make runs to the vet, animal transports, provide foster homes and animal adoption support.

“We are so blessed at the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society for all the wonderful volunteers,” Christy said.

One couple who live in Gulf County part-time spend much of their time here helping out with projects of all kinds around the facility.

“The volunteers they have do an amazing job,” said Andy Smith, whose family company, Hannon Insurance, has been a sponsor of the Bow Wow Bash from the outset. “The work they do makes it worthwhile to support them. The facility, which is great for anyone who hasn’t been out there, the board, they work hard and do a great job.

“The event is a real blast.”

As the blast has grown into a smash a network of locals providing essential support has expanded.

Wylie Petty and his staff from the El Governor Motel “transform” the Centennial Building each year, decorating the building and donating every bit of sweat, time and dollars.
