​The Many Community Center is going to the dogs on Saturday, Oct. 12.  

​That’s because it’s hosting a fundraiser for the Sabine Humane Society and the Sabine Parish Animal Shelter.

​’A Dog’s Way Home’ is the special movie they’re showing to raise money to help homeless dogs, and the movie is guaranteed to pull at your heartstrings.

The PG movie is about abandoned animals, veterans with PTSC, a hero who adopts a motherless half-pit-bull puppy in a town where the pit bull breed is outlawed.

​The dog, Bella, and her owner are devoted to one another, but somehow the two get painfully separated.  And so Bella must make a difficult journey of over 400 miles, as she tries to find her way home to hopefully be reunited with her owner.

Along the way, Bella, who is played by a real dog,“adopts” a young cougar thathas overexpressive eyes. The pair have to fend off wolves more than once.

“A Dog’s Way Home” serves up a one- to two-hankie finale, that will leave your entire family happy with the ending.

There will be no admission charge to see “A Dog’s Way Home”, but all donations will be appreciated since the Sabine Animal Shelter needs funds to buy treats, blankets, towels, cleaning supplies, and especially toys for the dogs and cats who find themselves without homes and are residents of the animal shelter until they are, hopefully, adopted into loving homes.

There will be door prizes and the evening promises to be lots of fun for the entire family.  You are encouraged to bring not only financial donations but towels, blankets, treats and toys for the dogs and cats who live at the shelter.

A membership drive is also underway by the Sabine Humane Society and membership applications are going to be available at the Community Center.
