Let your appetite do the giving while you support the St. Augustine Humane Society by dining at the local Columbia Restaurant during the month of September for lunch or dinner.
When the Humane Society is selected as a recipient, The Columbia will donate a percentage of the guests’ lunch and dinner checks in the form of gift certificates to the Humane Society. The process is for lunch and dinner customers to put a check mark next to the name of the charitable organization listed on the form provided by the server.
According to Carolyn Smith, St. Augustine Humane Society’s Executive Director, the gift certificate program helps to provide thanks to the non-profit’s volunteer base which is the foundation of the organization’s charity pet clinic and other programs to help pets and their owners in St. JohnsCounty. “We appreciate the restaurant patrons and their support to help prevent the needless relinquishment of pets to shelters through our charity services and low-cost spay neuter programs,” she said.
The Community Harvest program began in 1998 as a way to help many worthy non-profit groups in all of the Columbia Restaurant locations including St. Augustine, Tampa, Sarasota, St. Petersburg, ClearwaterBeach, and Celebration.
The St. Augustine Humane Society promotes responsible pet ownership and strengthens the human-animal bond through education and training; works to reduce the relinquishment rate of pets to shelters through assistance services and through effective, affordable spay and neuter efforts; and is a resource center for the citizens and animals of St. Johns County, Florida. The facility is located at 1665 Old Moultrie Road in St. Augustine, Fla. Business hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 9 am until 4 pm. Closed on Sunday and Monday.
