Ezell's Catfish presents PAWS Humane with check from "Dine for Dogs' donations

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - During the month of February, Ezell's Catfish in Columbus organized 'Dine for Dogs' to help a local animal shelter.

For every hushpuppy eaten, 2 cents were donated to PAWS Humane in Columbus.  Owner Clark Ezell presented PAWS with a check for $1,074.44 Thursday morning.

"We were really excited about it. We do have a lot of organizations that work with us. One way we're able to fulfill our mission is by having local business in the community reach out to us and want to help the homeless animals in Columbus. So, we were extremely excited," says Director of Marketing, Casey Smith.

Over 85,000 hushpuppies were eaten.
