Hoof & Paw resume meetings after COVID

This year’s Hoof & Paw Benevolence Society officers held their first meeting at Tweedberry Farm in Ridgeway with board members Kathy Faulk, president; Minge Wiseman, treasurer; Terri Daughtry, vice president; Aimee Griffith, member at large; Kathy Korash, secretary, and Janell Gregory, social media.

BLYTHEWOOD – The Hoof & Paw Benevolent Society returned to in-person gatherings with their first regular monthly meeting after more than a year on Saturday, June 5.

The group met at Tweedberry Farm in Ridgeway for a covered dish picnic and a K9 Agility demonstration. Alison Carter, the owner and operator of Carolina Performance K9s in Columbia, set up an abbreviated course at the farm and showed off the agility skills of her champion Border Collie, Passion. Passion breezed over jumps, wove through poles, darted through tunnels and showed off several impressive tricks, all of which brought cheers from the audience.

Entertainment was provided by agility dog, Passion, at left performing flying course work.

Hoof and Paw members had a lot to celebrate, including a wider outreach in the Midlands area through funding numerous spay and neuter clinics, funding lifesaving heartworm treatments for animals in shelters and rescues, organizing rescues for animals in need, providing pet food to senior citizen pet owners and more.
