Name: Carol Poole
Favorite Charity: Humane Society of SEMO
We have been helping the Humane Society of Southeast Missouri for a long time, most of our beloved pets were found there. Many of our friends have donated many an hour helping out the animals that have been thrown away, they look at you with those caring eyes and it is hard not to take one home. I have always had a soft spot for animals, this organization just seemed to fit with me.
I am the coordinator for the artwork that is donated to the Humane Society of SEMO from The Cat Ranch Art Guild every year. This is their biggest fundraiser of the year. Many businesses and individuals donate items and a large crowd participates in the dinner and auction for the animal shelter. Silent auctions begin early with many tables of donated items, then dinner, followed by an oral auction.
