Springfield Humane Society Seeks Plant & Baked Donations for Fundraiser

The Springfield Humane Society is looking for donations of perennials, garden plants and house plants for its annual Plant and Bake Sale to be held on Saturday, May 8 at the Springfield Plaza.

Proceeds from this sale all go to the costs of care of animals at the Shelter and to the Spay\Neuter Clinics held monthly around the area. Please consider donating some of your extra seedlings or perennials to help these animals find their forever homes.

Also donations of baked goods are vital to the success of this sale. Last year the food sold out before the plants, and shoppers were very disappointed.

For more information, contact Jill Markert at 886-4475.
