On Monday, April 29, the Venango College Veterans Club and Medical Imaging Club members will hold a "dogs for dogs" fundraiser to benefit the Venango County Humane Society's new building initiative. The event is open to the community. Participants are asked to bring a cash donation or an item for the Humane Society and receive a free hot dog and other goodies between11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on the sidewalk area in front of the Robert W. Rhoades Center. Rain location will be in the Rhoades Center gymnasium.
Venango County Humane Society volunteers will bring dog and cat adoptees to the campus in order for students, staff and the community to learn about the services offered by the agency. Donations can also be mailed to the Venango County Humane Society at P.O. Box 1045, Oil City, PA 16301, or by visiting their current facility on 2724 Deep Hollow Road. The following items are always appreciated: towels and blankets, paper towels, laundry detergent, collars and leashes (all sizes), treats, toys (plastic so they can be disinfected), cat litter (non-clumping), bleach, tall kitchen and 33 gallon garbage bags, copy paper, postage stamps, gift cards (so that staff can purchase items when needed most), and other animal/shelter care related items.
The Venango College Veterans Club was formed in 2009, with the intention of welcoming the influx of Post 911-discharged veterans seeking a college education. The student club has taken on projects that have benefitted those in need, delivering holiday gifts, visiting elderly veterans in the county's nursing homes, honoring those same vets on Veterans Day and making Easter baskets.
The Medical Imaging Club has also sponsored and participated in numerous community events and is part of the adopt-a-highway road clean-up project.
