An Evening in the Garden


Olive was invited to a benefit for Hoof & Paw Benevolent Society at Woodley’s Garden Center. There was a silent auction, live music and really delicious food donated from lots of local vendors.

Olive searched high and low for her four legged friends and finally found her cousin Trixie when Katie Faulk, the Hoof & Paw Community Outreach Director, called them on stage to talk about the many ways Hoof & Paw helps rescue animals.

Olive helped her mom bid on a few things at the silent auction. She is hoping they win the doggy pillow bed 😀

Olive & her CPM co-workers had a great time at the fundraiser and made a lot of new friends. She hopes you all will consider donating to Hoof & Paw through Olive’s Campaign here: Olive’s Campaign.

Olive’s Campaign for Hoof & Paw

Olive was rescued last year and now she wants to help other animals like her find a good home! CPM is working on Olive’s Campaign to raise money for Hoof & Paw Benevolent Society.

Hoof & Paw is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization whose main goal is to help not only cats and dogs, but horses and other livestock too! Hoof & Paw works to fundraise for Fairfield, Richland and Lexington County animal shelters. They have a partnership with Fairfield County where they pay for 10 animals to be spayed or neutered and Fairfield County matches their contribution and then the animals go to Pets Inc to be adopted. Our goal is to help them increase the number of pets that can be treated!

Since Olive was rescued, she has a wonderful home life that she shares with her feline sister, Tilly.

Olive also has a full time job here at CPM. As the official Office Dog, her duties consist of greeting visitors to the office and assisting in all pet interviews.

Here’s Olive meeting a potential dog applicant for one of our properties, she is faced with the ruff decision of whether or not she wants to share her toy with him.

Please help Olive raise money for her friends at Hoof & Paw. CPM will match donations made to Hoof & Paw under Olive’s Campaign.
