Mar 14, 2013 Lexington, KY The Omega chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha is constantly searching for community service events each and every semester throughout the Lexington community. The Omega chapter feels that giving back to the community is of upmost importance and participating in these types of events gives us the opportunity to develop ourselves into quality young men. Recently, the chapter sent a number of active members to the Lexington Humane Society to take some time out of their weekend to work with the animals there. The members fed and spent time with the animals, cleaned up the cages, as well as other miscellaneous tasks assigned to them. Other community service events, such as working with the local Ronald McDonald House and numerous 5k races, are being planned for later in the semester.
The Lexington Humane Society has a goal to advocate the compassionate treatment of animals; educate the community on responsible, lifelong pet ownership; and promote adoption as the best option when searching for a new pet. They are a non-profit humane agency completely reliant upon private donations and community support.
More general information can be found about the Lexington Humane Society as well as information about how to adopt a pet or donate can be found here.
