Student Groups Host Rescue Pet Benefit

May 8, 2014

Athens State University’s chapter of the Institute of Management Accountants (IMA) conducted an Animal Rescue Supply Drive for the Madison Animal Rescue Foundation (MARF) and Peace, Love and Animals (PLA) in conjunction with Athens State Student Government Association’s (SGA) Prancing Paws Carnival on April 26th.

The SGA event helped the organizations raise over $1,400 with $500 donated from Jack’s restaurant, $500 from the Athens State Alumni Association and $400 from IMA and individual donations. The event brought over 200 animal enthusiasts to campus to bring awareness to the need for loving animal rescue homes. There was an animal obstacle course and free refreshments for two-legged and four-legged attendees.

MARF and PLA provide care, comfort, and spaying/neutering services for lost and deserted animals. They also provide foster homes who feed and shelter animals until a home can be found.

Bailey Gregory, the 2013-2014 SGA Vice President, said she was “so happy for the turnout.” The SGA officers and members worked very hard to coordinate the efforts on campus to benefit both organizations.

“PLA and MARF were in awe of the generosity on campus and so grateful for everything,” states IMA advisor Stacie Hughes. “An SUV was filled twice with all the donations received from students, faculty and staff.”
