Polar Plunge for the Humane Society of Warren County

Our conversation with Meghan Bowers, Director of Humane Society of Warren County gave us details for their upcoming Polar Plunge happening on January 15, 2021 at 11am at the Front Royal 4H Center’s Lake Culpeper. Sponsorships & Plungers are still welcome.

Meghan also gave us an update on the Spay/Neuter Clinic they opened earlier in 2021. She explained their policies for getting “community cats” spayed/neutered and talked about the incredible staff she has at the clinic.

We also talked about the long-timers at the shelter, their pigeon & guinea pigs, the adoption process, and why surrendering is ALWAYS a better option than simply turning your animals loose.

HSWC interview and Polar Plunge

The Humane Society of Warren County held their second annual Polar Plunge event at the 4-H education center on Saturday.

The event was rescheduled due to the weather which gave the society more time for fund raising.

Again this year Molly Llewellyn was the top fundraiser netting $3,000.

Close to 30 plungers were able to raise almost $22,000.

The plunge helps with the care of shelter animals in Warren County.

We spoke with Humane Society Executive Director Meghan Bowers about the progress of the low cost spay and neuter clinic scheduled to open this year in Front Royal.
