Carthage Humane Society Sponsors Dog Show

The Maple Leaf Festival is underway in Carthage and today it began with a dog show. Locals brought their four legged friends out to Central park to be judged in classes such as best costume and golden oldie. The event was sponsored by the Carthage Humane Society, which has been trying to turn things around since it came under fire in August for allegations of underweight animals and shoddy paperwork.  The new director for the Carthage Humane Society says changes are coming through systematic organization.

Director Deborah Bell said, "You can't fix everything at once, but you can pick the five most important. That's my theory. And for me it was to make sure the animals were clean, fed, the facility was sanitized. Also to unite our volunteers with workers with every part of the community."

The humane society says volunteers are working hard to help improve the facility. If you would like to sign-up to help out at the Carthage Humane Society, you can do so on its website.
