ZANESVILLE, Ohio- HoneyBaked Ham is helping the Muskingum County Canine Advocates fundraise.

On Thursday 15% HoneyBaked Ham’s day sales will go towards the building of a new dog pound facility. Volunteers from MCCA
pre-sold more than 1,000 box lunches. The box lunches consist of your choice of a sandwich, a side dish, a cookie and a drink.

“Naturally as a local business owner we always like to help out local community contributions in any way we can. Sometimes it’s more some times it’s less than what we can possibly donate. And sometimes it’s just our time that’s great to do as well. But in this case we were able to raise quite a bit of money for the dog pound,” said HoneyBaked Ham Owner Chad Lynn.

In March the volunteers from the Muskingum County Dog Pound became a state recognized non-profit corporation.

“Our goal is million dollars. So we’re shooting for the stars. We have a lot of community support. We are really confident that one day we’ll be able to set back and look at the new pound. Which is just really necessary for the dogs’ quality of life,” said Muskingum County Dog Pound Volunteer Morgan Hinds.

Hinds said MCCA plans on hold at least one fundraiser per month. In May they will hold an open house and celebrity bail-out, in June a golf outing, followed by a 5K Run in July.
