GREENVILLE — The Darke County Humane Society has been effected by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, but through the generosity of the community, has been able to maintain its rescue operations and services.
In 2020, many of the major fundraisers, such as the Annual Auction, had to be canceled, but has been recently rescheduled for Saturday, May 1, 2021, 5 p.m., at PAWS Bingo, located at 848 Martin Street in Greenville.
One way businesses, organizations and residents can help would be through making a donation or contribution for the planned DCHS Charity Auction. Donations, such as gift certificates, antiques, collectibles, handmade goods, or gift cards, can be dropped off any time at the DCHS shelter, located at 7053 State Route 49 North, in Greenville. Shelter hours are Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Saturdays, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Questions about the auction, contact Ruth McDaniel by email at [email protected]
