Jennifer Giddens, the director of the Jones County Animal Shelter, continues to create innovative ways to get the news out about not only taking care of the family pet but to also have the pet spayed or neutered.
When she’s not dedicating her time with keeping the animals from becoming homeless, she is then focused on feeding these lost dogs and cats until they can be adopted.
A family event is planned at Gray-8-Skate Sept. 28, 7-10 p.m., combining skating with games, prizes, and raffles. It is located on Gray Highway between Old Clinton Bar-B-Q and the Highway 18 stop light (just behind the car wash).
Giddens said the Skate For A Cause event will bring aid to her shelter because a percentage of the admission price will go toward the various animal control upkeep processes. She also wants to reward those who can easily help the cause of these animals.
Attendees should bring dog food. Giddens said she will have special raffles and tickets that will be given out to those who come bearing dog food.
