On behalf of the Humane Society of Levy County, Inc. board of directors, I would like to personally thank you the community, sponsors, vendors, and volunteers for your recent support to the second annual “Bark-N-Purr” Charity Concert - Barbecue Cook-Off. This event could not have been a success without the help of you, the community, and the many other sponsors, vendors, and volunteers who donated their time and support.

The event kicked off the day of activities with an official opening ceremonies with a full military color guard, Lori Prevatt performed the national anthem, and Dogan Cobb provided an invocation at noon on Feb. 28.

There were numerous activities that went on throughout the day including the Disc-Connected K-9’s, a snow slope for the children, free barbecue tasting, drum line performance from the Bronson High School drum line, K-9 demonstrations from the Levy County Sheriff’s Office and the city of Chiefland. The Humane Society provided a booth for attendees to receive free educational materials such as spay and neuter, how to be a good pet owner, and have a chance to meet some our adoptable animals looking for their furever home. The event also included live entertainment including Bryce Carlisle, Tom Jackson, and Sony BMG Nashville artist Craig Morgan. In addition, the audience gave a warm welcome to local college football standout Tim Tebow who was there to enjoy the great country music.

Once again, the Humane Society would like to Thanks these local sponsors and vendors:
