(THOMASTON, ME): On Saturday, September 7, Midcoast area animal lovers helped Wasses Hot Dogs of Thomaston raise $250 to benefit the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County’s Spay/Neuter Fund. Wasses invited people to, ‘Save a Cat, Eat a Dog’, with a portion of the day’s proceeds donated to PMHSKC.

Wasses Owner Keith Wass said: “We support the efforts of PMHSKC in making the Midcoast a better and more humane place for pets and people. It was only natural for us to help them raise funds to continue their programs.”

“This is a wonderful boost toward reducing the number of homeless cats and kittens by helping people get access to affordable spay/neuter services. We very much appreciate this support from this great local restaurant,” said PMHSKC Executive Director Tracy Sala.

The PMHSKC was founded in 1989 to provide care, protection, and loving homes for abandoned and homeless companion animals in the Midcoast Maine area. The Society operates an animal shelter located between the Dexter Street Extension and Buttermilk Lane in Thomaston that is open between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday (closed Sundays). The Humane Society of Knox County provides animal support services to the towns of Rockland, Thomaston, Warren, Owls Head, St. George, Port Clyde, Martinsville, Tenants Harbor, S. Thomaston (including Spruce Head), Hope, Union, Appleton, Montville, Cushing, Matinicus, North Haven, Vinalhaven, Stockton Springs, and Morrill.
