Partnering with Glynn County Animal Control on Saturday, Peacock Productions raised enough money to sponsor adoption of 20 animals at the shelter and facilitated the adoption of two dogs in Hanover Square in downtown Brunswick Saturday.
Around 75 or so people turned out to the event, which featured a community picnic, classic car show and Jacksonville-based band Beau and the Burners, said Jane Vicent, director of Peacock Productions.
The event served as a launch party for the charity event planner’s Puppies and Pin-ups calendar, the proceeds from which go towards sponsoring pet adoptions. The calendars sell for $25, which covers half of the usual pet adoption fee at the animal control shelter.
“We actually got local businesses to put ads in the calendar to pay for the calendar, so the proceeds are going to animal control, and there are limited copies available,” Vicent said.
The ultimate goal is to raise $2,000 through calendar sales to sponsor pet adoptions at the shelter. Anyone interested in purchasing a calendar can contact Vicent at 912-602-2025, or animal control at 912-554-7500.
“If people are still interested, we’ll deliver (the calendars),” Vicent said.
Two dogs were adopted from animal control’s mobile adoption unit, which was at the event, said Animal Control Manager Tiffani Hill. One was adopted from the shelter the same day, along with three taken to an out-of-town adoption event.
“It’s really important to me because the shelter is really full,” Vicent said.
Animal Control Manager Tiffani Hill concurred Sunday, saying the shelter is full of both dogs and cats and encouraging the public to adopt.
Hill said on Wednesday that Peacock Productions approached animal control with the idea.
“It was their idea, they approached us earlier this year and asked us if we would be interested in working with them on this calendar, and we’re excited to see shelter dogs featured. I think the photos are really cute,” Hill said. “Peacock Productions used shelter dogs earlier this year, and took their picture with pinup girls to make a calendar for animal control, and so this was their launch party for the calendar.”
Hill said the shelter’s mobile adoption unit will accompany a puppy yoga event today at 7 p.m. at the Pack Canine Studio. For more information, call the shelter at 912-554-7500.
