Hill County Paw Pals, Hill County, Texas

Chandley Sargent (9 years old) Earns and Donates $50
Towards Building a County Animal Shelter

Volunteers of Hill County Paw Pals and ultimately every citizen in Hill County would like to thank nine year old Chandley Sargent for donating $50 towards our animal shelter building fund.  Chandley is the daughter of Kristi and Kyle Sargent, of the Woodbury community, and the granddaughter of Daniel and Susan Bason of Itasca; and Mickey and Sandy Sargent of Eastland.  Chandley’s family has two dogs that came from area animal shelters.  When looking for a family pet, one of the best choices is to adopt pets from an animal shelter.  Even if you are looking for a pure bred, keep in mind that up to 30% of impounded dogs are pure bred.  Animal shelters are the best place to locate your new best friend.  Shelters provide the greatest assortment in animals.  And more important, when you adopt a companion animal from a shelter, you gain the lifelong gratitude and devotion of a pet that otherwise would be homeless.  Paw Pals is working hard towards making a Hill County Animal Shelter a reality.

After witnessing our county’ s current overpopulation of unwanted dogs and cats and knowing that an animal shelter does not exist, Chandley looked for ways to raise funds to help them.  She decided to raffle a large stuffed dog at last month’s Cinco de Mayo festivities in Itasca.  Many generous people supported Chandley’s cause and she was able to raise this large sum of money.  Pictured with Chandley presenting her gift to Paw Pals is George Kerr, Hillsboro resident and Hill County Paw Pals’ board member.

We are so grateful for the generous donation that Chandley has provided and for her mature and selfless motivation to make our county a better place to live by helping us help our many unwanted dogs and cats in our county.  The total amount of Chandely’s gift has been directed to the animal shelter building fund and will one day assist all the unwanted pets in Hill County.  Thank you Chandley for your compassionate gift to provide shelter to our many unwanted dogs and cats.  For more information about Hill County Paw Pals, please email: hcpawpals@yahoo.com; or call (254) 580-0679.  Our next public meeting is scheduled at 6:30pm on July 10 at Hill College cafeteria in Hillsboro.
