Laurens Electric Cooperative’s September recipient of the employee Pay it Forward funds is Meter Service Supervisor Rodney Brewer.
Rodney chose to donate $500 in supplies to the Laurens County Humane Society’s new Adoption Center.
“I have a passion for pets and I liked the idea of the no-kill adoption center,” said Rodney.
The Adoption Center is a dream realized just this year, and is run by a small staff of dedicated volunteers. The pets in residence are given a safe place, veterinary care, and a welcoming environment in which to meet potential adopters.
“We went out on a limb, but we’ve been humbled by the generosity and support of the community,” said the Humane Society’s Assistant Director Brooke Spatta, who is also a professor at Presbyterian College. “Everyone loves animals and the people have wanted something like this for a long time.”
As Rodney points out, “we were put here on earth to be keepers of the animals.”
