Special Dog Needs Special Human

E-mail Print PDF

Potsdam Humane Society once again is seeking a home for a long time resident. Bubba Chubba, a 3 year old pit mix, has been in the shelter over a year and a half. In March 2013, Bubba, abandoned, tied to a porch with no food or water, was rescued by a local dog control officer. He is a 80 pounds of muscle, but thinks he is a miniature poodle! Very sweet and loving, he considers himself a lap dog, and does not know his own size.

PHS Thanks Ponderosa’s Jeff Prosper

E-mail Print PDF

For yet another year, the generosity of Ponderosa owner Jeff Prosper has helped the animals at the Potsdam Humane Society. On August 16, Jeff hosted at his restaurant a car wash in memory of Chad Fuller, a local veteran who lost his young life in Afghanistan, and raised over 500 dollars to help the needy animals.

In spite of less than perfect weather, the community supported the event. The Humane Society is always grateful for these kinds acts. Mr. Prosper bought new hose nozzles, supplied the water and car wash venue, sent pizza and soda “curb side” to keep the volunteers energized.

Potsdam is fortunate to have so many caring business owners like Jeff at Ponderosa, who support local nonprofits.
