Cadence bank and the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society are teaming up to host a pet adoption day tomorrow from 10 a.m. to noon at the Cadence branch at 3601 Bluecutt Road.
The Humane Society will provide pets for adoption and donations are being accepted at all Cadence branches to raise needed funds for completion of the local Society's new animal shelter.
"Cadence has been a long-time supporter of the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society," said Doug Robertson, Columbus banking center president for Cadence Bank. "Their work to place these animals into loving homes is to be applauded, and the bond that develops between owner and pet enhances the lives and well-being of both."
The Humane Society will offer $35 adoptions for cats and $65 adoptions for dogs to all approved adopters. The fee includes a vaccination, worming and bordella treatments and spaying/neturering of the pet, as well as micro-chipping for dogs.
"Each year, thousands of animals in Columbus are in need of a new, lifelong home," said Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society Director Karen Johnwick. "We are thankful to Cadence Bank for the generosity they have shown us over the years, as we strive to provide these animals with the wonderful lives they deserve."
Donations supporting the Humane Society and the new animal shelter under construction will be collected at all Columbus Cadence Bank branches through August, during normal business hours.
About $250,000 is needed to complete the new animal shelter.
"I recently had the opportunity to visit with several animals for adoption at the Humane Society," said Cadence Bank Treasury Management Sales Officer Lori Frady. "To interact with these animals first-hand really affirms the great work the Humane Society is doing to care for these animals and get them into caring homes and we at Cadence Bank are proud to play a part. It is our hope this event helps take the Humane Society closer to completing its capital campaign goal."
