Woman’s Club Conservation and Public Issues chairmen organized the club members to create handmade dog chew toys and collected items needed from the Humane Society wish list. A group of club members delivered all the items to the Humane Society facility. While there, the club members were given a tour of the facility and introduced to some of the pets awaiting homes.
