Kiwanis Club of Danville program featured DBCHS director Matthews 

KIWANIS CLUB 

News release 

The program this past week for the Kiwanis Club of Danville was by Paige Matthews, director of the Danville-Boyle County Humane Society. Paige, who was named the director in September 2017, shared the following information about the organization’s mission and activities:

• They have been serving the Boyle County area since 1972.

• They take in about 2,500 animals per year.

• Their “Happy Paws Spay and Neuter Clinic”, which opened in 2007, takes care of 1,200 animals per year, and is a great low-cost option for spaying and neutering with a great staff. People come from all across the state and even some from out of state!

• Their recent addition has provided them with a great new kennel, grooming area, treatment area, and isolation section.

• Having the county’s Animal Control Center housed with them is a great treat, as many counties don’t have that proximity.

• Their partnerships with area pet retailers are great successes, and provide them with a majority of their adoptions.

• Their partnership with Cheri Carbone’s Mutts With Manners program has been a tremendous success, adopting out dogs after 1-on-1 training.

• Their volunteers of all ages, and from all walks of life, as well as their public support, are outstanding.
