EATON — The Summit Chiropractic Office donated a large amount of dog and cat food to the Preble County Humane Society on Saturday, Jan. 30, thanks to a drive held by the local doctor’s office.
Dr. Earl House said the drive was called the “Dog Days of Winter” and his office accepted staff and community donations.
According to House, this is only the first of many drives his offices are planning to run this year.
“One of my mentors talks a lot of giving, loving, serving and giving back in an abundance — I really try to live by that and I’ve had a chance to give back the last three years but we are really wanting to ramp things up for 2016.”
“The Humane Society is a non-profit organization who is giving, loving and serving on a regular basis,” House said of the local organization. “If we can give back to someone who is serving the community that is our real goal.”
House said the next drive will be in honor of the Daytona 500 and return of NASCAR — his office will host the “Undie 500.” The drive will take donations of diapers to give to the Preble County Women’s Shelter.
Human Society Director Leslie Renner said any donation goes a long way for a shelter that is completely dependent on donations for operating funds.
