Thomasville, Georgia-- Doctor Mark Glaccum is a top prospect at this year's Gun and Golf Tournament for the Thomas County Humane Society.
"Each station you're shooting four shots. It's not easy," says Glaccum. The tournament isn't just about fun for Glaccum, or the 80 other contestants. It's about saving lives.
"I've got two rescue dogs," says Glaccum. "The people who are participating pay a fee to enter, and that fee is basically what supports the humane society," adds Thomasville / Thomas County Humane Society Director, Carol Jones.
The humane society takes in more than 5,000 animals each year. This tournament will bring in double that figure to keep it operating. "Hopefully in the neighborhood of ten thousand dollars for animal welfare, for the maintenance of our facility, for spay / neuter certificates," says Jones.
Like everyone who participated this morning, you can consider that money, and ammo, well spent. "I'm just thankful that I live in such a generous community," says Jones. "Not only is it a good cause, it's a lot of fun. I played last year and probably had one of the best days ever," adds participant, Kimberly Dixon. "It's awesome. All you have to do is go to the humane society. It'll break your heart," says Glaccum. That's still better than the deadly alternative, if this money wasn't raised.
Humane Society officials say as many as eight million dogs and cats enter shelters each year. Up to half of those have to be euthanized.
