Wayne and Julie Sharp were married after moving to Polk County and decided not to accept original wedding gifts from their friends and family. Instead, the couple asked for cash donations or pet items that would be given to the Humane Society of the Ouachitas (HSO).
Julie was able to attend an HSO meeting on Thursday, October 20th, and delivered the gifts. Included in the gift was $800 in cash and an array of pet items like dog food, toys, pet shampoo, and treats. “We’re older and we have enough stuff,” said Julie. “We love animals and have rescued them for years so we thought it was ideal.”
HSO was extremely thankful for the donation. Pictured are HSO Board members with their generous donor and gifts (l to r): Jane Weddle, Cheryl Murphy, Julie Sharp, Dannie Bregman, Sheila Theriot, Tina Ball, Michael Povey, and Neil Fosdick.
