Our special thanks to Dr. and Mrs. Emrick and their dog, Sugar, for hosting this annual spring event in their beautiful, historic home. This event serves as a critical fundraiser for the operations fund of the Natchez-Adams County Humane Society.

Now more than ever, the animals need the full support of our community. Our operating funds are at an all-time low, while the number of animals we must care for continues to grow. All donations to the NACHS will be appreciated and are tax deductible. We thank our faithful supporters for your continued help, and we hope to see you Saturday. If you are unable to attend, donations can be mailed to NACHS P.O. Box 549 Natchez, MS 39121.

Susan Mingee is a resident of Natchez and a member of the NACHS board of directors.
