Scott family donates items to Humane Society

December 25, 2009

Ginger, formerly known as Buttercup, went home three years ago, but she and her family remember where they met. Earlier this month, Ginger, accompanied by family members Jan Scott, and two of Jan's four daughters returned to the Humane Society of Washington County and brought holiday treats for the homeless animals that are still waiting for their new families.

"Ginger has turned out to be the best dog for us," said Jan, who is known as Big Jan by her family because she has a daughter also named Jan. "To honor her, we thought we would remember the other animals that didn't have homes this holiday, so my daughters and I came in to give everyone a special treat."

Daughters Indigo and Little Jan made the rounds to the dog kennels and cat enclosures, while Big Jan and Ginger visited with the shelter staff.

Love of animals runs in the family. Big Jan has been involved in horse rescue and Little Jan has chosen to become a veterinarian. "She is a straight-A student," said Big Jan. "She loves all animals."

Daughters Jocelyn and Ashley did not accompany the rest of the family on their quest to bring holiday cheer to the shelter, but they were with their family in spirit.
