The Humane Society of Pike County will meet at 6 p.m. Monday, February 10, at the Charles Henderson Child Health Center meeting room.

Donna Brockmann, society president, said all animal-loving people are invited to the meeting.

“The Humane Society of Pike County would like to extend a special invitation to all ‘parents’ whose ‘animal children’ are featured in our 2020 Pet Photo Calendar,” Brockmann said. “On Monday night, are hosting our Second Annual Greet Treat so we hope that everyone will make plans to attend. We are impassioned; we are fun and we are about business.”

Brockmann said 13,000 votes were cast in the 2020 Pet Photo contest.

“At a dollar a vote, that means we will again be able to offer the HSPC’s annual spay/neuter program in the spring,” she said. “Having dogs and cats spayed/neutered will greatly reduce the number of unwanted and unloved dogs and cats in Pike County.”

Brockmann said the beginning date for the HSPC spay/neuter program will be announced in the next few weeks.

The HSPC has some 2020 Pet Photo Calendars still available.

“We know that there are family members and friends of the featured pets that would still enjoy having one of the calendars,” Brockmann said. “The animals are precious and the photos are wonderful. And, for those who attend our Monday meeting, we will have a special price for our calendars – eight dollars each or two for $15.”

Brockmann said the ‘parents’ of the animals featured in the 2020 Pet Photo Calendar may now pick up their original hard copy photos and the copies that were hung in Three Notch Antiques.

“Every animal in the Pet Photo Contest has a copy picture displayed at Three Notch Antiques on the square in downtown Troy,” she said. “The pictures are so cute and I’m sure the parents of these animals would want to have them.”

Brockmann said those who are interested in knowing more about the Humane Society of Pike County are invited to attend the society’s Monday meeting.

“We welcome new members and also those who would like to volunteer on an as-needed basis,” Brockmann said. “Please come and learn more about the HSPC and enjoy the refreshments and the fun and fellowship.
