Cappy's to host fundraising dinner Jan. 8
Camden — According to the Centers for Disease Control a pet can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol levels, triglyceride levels and feelings of loneliness and give a oerson added opportunities for exercise, outdoor activity and socialization.
All of that is the scientific way of saying something most of know by instinct: pets just seem to make life better.
Since their opening in 1991, Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County has been bringing homeless pets and their future humans together for their mutual benefit. They provide a safe, caring environment for homeless and abandoned animals until they can be placed with loving families. They also promote humane treatment of all animals and work to address pet overpopulation with an aggressive spay and neuter program. Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County has contracts with the towns of 20 Midcoast communities and is generously supported by volunteers from all these communities by people of all ages and from all walks of life.
To assist Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County and their mission, Cappy’s Chowder House and Harbor View has arranged for Jan. 8 to be their Community Connections night. On Wednesday evening from 5 to 9 p.m. Cappy’s will donate up to half of whatever restaurant patrons spend on dinner to help them continue their work placing stray and abandoned pets in permanent homes.
Anyone wishing to support Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County is invited to simply eat dinner at Cappy’s on Jan. 8, from 5 to 9 p.m. Cappy’s Chowder House and Harbor View is located at 1 Main Street in the heart of downtown Camden. Representatives will be on hand at the restaurant all evening to answer questions about their organization.
