Information regarding donations to Humane Society

January 23, 2013

United States shared at local pork producer meeting
By: Carol Schreiber Murray County News Staffwriter

In an effort to educate the public, Dr. Brad Freking of New Fashion Pork in Jackson shared information about the Humane Society of the United States. “People have such a misconception about what they do,” Freking pointed out.

In this holiday season of giving, Freking reminds individuals to look carefully at organizations that they are donating to, and Larry Liepold of Okabena agrees. A member of the National Pork Producers Council, Liepold suggested “making more contributions to your local animal shelters,” as their funds would be used more appropriately for the area.
