The Camden County Humane Society has just started another way to help support the dogs and cats they house. Feeding and caring for such a large amount of animals can add up quickly, and this new project that got its start last week will go to help the temporary pound puppies and kittens.
Last week, the Humane Society of Camden County kicked off their new online ReTail Store. The virtual store is completely full of inventory, thanks to receiving an estate. Browse their store, and view the pre-loved items available, including furniture, antiques, artwork, collectibles, kitchen items and much more.
Payments can be made via PayPal or credit/debit cards, and once payment has been made, a private message will be sent with the item location for pickup. The shelter doesn’t offer delivery. Available items for sale will be added often, so check back on a regular basis.
Although they don’t need inventory at the moment, they can always use monetary donations. Donations can be made through their Facebook page or their website.
All proceeds will go straight back to the shelter, to help care for the many dogs and cats under its roof.
One of those puppies who will benefit from sales within the virtual store is Captain. A year-and-half-of American Staffordshire Terrier Mix, Captain was surrendered to the shelter about three months ago. Jennifer Hutchinson shared some insight about Captain, one of the longer-stay canines within the shelter. “Captain was one of those dogs that took some time to trust the employees and volunteers but once he learned we were there to care for him, he quickly turned into a dog with a heart of gold,” she said. “He enjoys seeing his favorite workers and volunteers and does for bonds with those who work with him. He does great on a leash and enjoys laying in the sunshine while he’s in the yard.”
Volunteers and workers at the shelter are hoping of placing Captain with a “fur-ever” home. Ms. Hutchinson revealed a bit more about the sweet-tempered dog. “Captain does like to receive hugs and kisses and is honestly one of my favorite dogs currently at the shelter”, she shared. “We are working diligently to correct some stress behaviors that he is currently showing due to his length of stay at the shelter.” Ms. Hutchinson did elaborate on his behaviors, saying that she has no doubt that once he’s in a home that these behaviors can be corrected, providing a lucky person with an amazing pet. Captain would best be suited in a home with adults and those 14-years-old and over, and with owners that that understand he will take some patience, time and training. The right individual or family that adopts him and shows him love, will be repaid by Captain by his never-ending love and affection!
To meet Captain, or any of the other dogs and cats within the shelter, stop by Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday, between noon and 5:00 p.m. They are located at 950 S Grove Street in Kingsland. Or they can be reached at 912.729.7141 Here is their website.
