Support the Greater Birmingham Humane Society’s commitment to our communities with a donation made through the Barking for Bucks campaign, a live telethon fundraising event. The annual “Barking for Bucks” telethon will take place from 7 to 9 a.m. the weekend of Aug. 2-3 at the GBHS Adoption Center, located on Snow Drive in Homewood.
Hosted live by local television talent Mickey Ferguson and Jeh-Jeh Pruitt, the telethon will feature adoptable pets, local celebrities and live interviews. This family event is a great way to learn about the many programs provided by the GBHS and to see the positive impact the organization is making on the community and animals.
In conjunction with the Barking for Bucks telethon, GBHS is hosting a family fun day Saturday, Aug. 2. Join us from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for a free community festival event. The event will include food trucks, children’s activities and pet supply vendors. Local pets that have been adopted through the GBHS are invited to reunite with the facility and staff for a fun weekend.
In 2013, the telethon event raised more than $73,000 and received donations from 830 individuals. All proceeds from the telethon directly support the mission and operations of the GBHS. Corporate sponsorship opportunities are available for the televised event.
Vendors and friends are invited to set up a table to promote your organization or business at no cost. Booth set up begins at 9:45 a.m. and the community festival will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 2.
