Record-breaking animal adoptions in 2013Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County
Happy New Year to all our friends, adopters and supporters. Thank you for a very successful 2013. We appreciate all who remembered the homeless animals during the holiday season and over the last year. With your generosity and support we were able to offer care and hope for the animals who came through our door needing our help and a second chance. We had a wonderful year of saving lives and creating families. We couldn’t have done it without you. We appreciate all the good wishes this holiday season. It was gratifying to see the many happy photos of the animals we have placed and how they have thrived in loving homes. There is no better reward than a happy ending for a homeless animal that we cared for and no better motivation to work hard to make it happen for each and every animal we receive. Preliminary numbers show that we accepted and adopted out another record number of animals. We know that we cannot help upwards of 1,500 homeless animals in one year without the loyal support of our community. Thank you.
We hope you will join us for dinner on Tuesday, Jan. 7 at Graffam Bros. Harborside Restaurant in Camden. PMHSKC has been chosen as the first participant in their 2014 Community Connections program. Simply by eating dinner at Harborside Restaurant on this special night, we will receive up to 50 percent of that night's receipts to support homeless animals in the Midcoast area.
Save the Date: We have another exciting event scheduled for Thursday, Feb. 6 at the Strand Theatre. Join us for a very special evening with David Rosenfelt author of “Dogtripping” as he shares his adventures of traveling from California to Maine with his 25 rescue dogs in three RV’s. Normally a mystery writer, Rosenfelt veered off to highlight this unusual and often humorous trip. David is a long-time supporter of animal shelters around the country, and he welcomes the chance to share his adventures to benefit PMHSKC. WCSH Channel 6′s Don Carrigan will MC the event. VIP tickets include: a hardcover, autographed copy of David’s book, "Dogtripping: 25 Rescues, 11 Volunteers, and 3 RVs on Our Canine Cross-Country Adventure;" an appetizer reception at 5:30 p.m.; and reserved seats to David’s appearance — all for only $40. General admission tickets available for $10. and doors open at 6:45 p.m. To purchase tickets, visit, call or go online to the Strand Theatre box office.
