Wiregrass Humane Society more than ready for K-9 Bowl donations
Millions of Americans will sit down to watch the Super Bowl on Sunday.
Here in the Wiregrass, they will have an extra game to catch - the second annual K-9 Media Bowl.
"It's been a good year, we are between 500 and 600 adoptions for the year, which is a pretty good number, but we currently have about 45 dogs in the building and 60-65 cats,” said Wiregrass Humane Society Manager Ryan Lawley.
While Ryan Lawley and the rest of the team at the Wiregrass Humane Society have managed a successful year of adoptions, something they definitely still need is donations.
"Donations have definitely dropped off since Christmas,” said Lawley. “We are low on dog food and cat food right now."
Fortunately for the humane society, the second annual K-9 Media Bowl is just days away.
A donation to the humane society is your ticket into the game.
"So while our media folks and Dothan Police officers will be going long for some passes,” said Lawley. “The food, it's going to be going a long way over at the Wiregrass Humane Society."
The humane society runs on donations, so they aren't too picky.
People can bring dog and cat food, cleaning supplies like bleach and paper towels, or they can help the puppies like Joy and Noel.
"We don't always use puppy food, just whenever we have a lot of puppies,” said Lawley. “We do currently have a lot of puppies and we could definitely use the puppy food.”
So even if the police are able to pull a repeat take the trophy again over the media, the real winners will be Noel, Joy and all the other critters at the Wiregrass Humane Society.
The K-9 Media Bowl will kick off at 1:00 p.m. Sunday at Rip Hewes Stadium.
The Wiregrass Humane Society prefers Pedigree for dogs and Purina Naturals for cats so they don't have to change the animals' diets.
