Humane Society highlighted at Kiwanis Club

What started out as a volunteer job turned into a career, Lori Plummer, Executive Director of the Humane Society serving Logan County, told the Bellefontaine Kiwanis Club at its regular meeting Thursday.

Plummer (left) moved to Logan County in 2007. Her love for animals prompted her to start volunteering at the society, and her experience as a general manager of another company helped her move into the executive director's position.

Margaret Miller founded the local society in 1972 and is now located at 2521 US Route 68 North, Bellefontaine. Plummer reported 35 to 40 animals are brought into the shelter each week, and said that the shelter has a 90% survival rate.

The Humane Society serving Logan County receives about 25% of its funding from the sale of dog tags, but as a 501c (3) organization, all other monies come in the form of private contributions, all of which, Plummer reminded the club, are tax deductible.

Benjamin Logan Key Club President Shelby Greer was also on hand to share the many activities it has participated in over the past school year, a long list which included the Dog Wash and adopting two families last Christmas.

Kiwanians will meet again next Thursday at noon at the Masonic Center on North Main Street. Steve Marshall will talk about the work of the Opiate Taskforce in Logan County.
