Give Back Event Tomorrow!!
Magnolia Mey Boutique has been so very blessed, and wishes to use the success of the boutique to bless the community. Each month a “Magnolia Mey Gives Back Event” will occur where a percentage of the total sales for a period of time will be donated a local charity.
Our February Give Back beneficiary is the Rita B Huff Humane Society.
The Rita B. Huff Humane Society of Walker County was organized in 1982 by a group of interested citizens. The Society took its name from Dr. Rita B. Huff, professor and chairman of the Accounting Department at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville.
Dr. Huff loved animals and used her ranch east of town as a personal animal shelter. She and others took in stray dogs, nursed them back to health, had them spayed and neutered and found homes for them. In 1982 she and Jack and Yvonne Kerr, along with Ed Sandhop, Nancy Brown, Jane Ellisor, Ruth Cady, and other concerned citizens of Walker County, decided it was time to organize a formal humane society with a goal of opening a regular animal shelter.
The Rita B. Huff Animal Shelter was opened on August 1, 1986 with 18 inside kennel runs, 13 stainless steel cat cages and 2 rabies isolation kennels. Since then they have had donations of perimeter fencing, outside dog runs (18 total) and funds for 10 more stainless steel cat cages. In 2002 donations were received for an in-house spay/neuter clinic which opened in January, 2003. Currently, 20-40 animals are spayed and neutered weekly!
While much still remains to be done and larger facilities are needed, they are operating successfully thanks to the dedicated work of a few and the generosity of many caring friends of the animals.
Come show the love to the homeless pets in our community!
