It's no secret that here at Spud we love to play golf. We love it even more when we're golfing for a good cause. So on July 23rd we sponsored a hole and sent two teams of golfers to "Dexter's Round," the Humane Society of Genesee County's first annual golf outing.
The outing was named in honor of Dexter, the pit bull. He'd lived at the Humane Society for months and won over the hearts of everyone who knew him. Dexter was finally adopted by a wonderful family, the Parillo's, who absolutely adore him. But, sadly, this sweet pup was recently diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor.
The Humane Society of Genesee County plans to make this the first in an annual tradition of golf outings. Fourteen teams participated in this year's event and all proceeds go to support the work of the Humane Society.
"The animals at the shelter want to thank all of those who sponsored, supported, donated and participated in this event," said Tolbert. "It was a great success and we hope to see many more teams next year!"
If you want to make a difference in the life of an animal, consider adopting. The Humane Society of Genesee County has lots of animals to choose from, like two-year-old Duncan.
