Riders raise funds for south Georgia pets

February 18, 2006

Albany- Area pet owners can have their pets spayed or neutered for free or at a discounted rate thanks to the Humane Society's latest fundraiser. Hog Wild Motorcycles hosted its fourth annual poker run to benefit the Pennies for Puppies campaign Saturday.

More than 125 riders came out in their leather and chaps to ride to nearby businesses to raise money for the charity. The Pennies for Puppies campaign hopes to cut down on the homeless animal population here in Albany.

"This money is for individuals in the community that have a pet that needs a spay or neuter. So, every penny raised goes back into the community. You can choose a vet of your choice and we'll have your pet spayed or neutered we'll pay for it," said Donna Strickland, Humane Society Director.

"If you love pets this is the ride to be on," said Paul Murray, Independent Riders Association.

The Humane Society says about 5,000 stray animals came to the shelter last year, so getting your pets spayed or neutered can help cut down on that number.
