Humane Society of Knox County announces name change
Thomaston — On Nov. 9, at its annual volunteer recognition dinner, the Humane Society of Knox County recognized Lyman Pope of the Lyman Pope Foundation. Pope has been supportive of many shelters throughout New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont. Pope has been directly involved with HSKC shelter for more than a decade.
Warner Vaughn, board president, stated, “Because of his tireless efforts and advocacy for shelter animals and his willingness to work with us so that we can achieve our vision of the future, we will now be known as the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County. “
HSKC was started in 1989 by a few people with a vision. They saw a need — homeless and abandoned animals — and worked to fill it. Now, more than 20 years later, the organization’s early vision of giving shelter, has grown into more than just an animal care facility.
The Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County will always be about sheltering and finding forever homes for all the homeless animals that cross their door — whether they are cats, dogs, cockatoos or a pot-bellied pig. PMHSKC is striving to become a vibrant resource center with exceptional leadership, volunteers, and facilities to serve the animals and people of the entire region.
