Mayor Hathaway Meets Little Hathaway

New Smyrna Beach Mayor Hathaway with Little Hathaway

New Smyrna Beach Mayor Hathaway with Little Hathaway


Hey everyone, our Little Hathaway went on an adventure today. He met Mayor Hathaway (his namesake) on our outing. We also were thrilled to see Liz Yancey, from Parks and Rec. Little Hathaway is already adopted and Big Hathaway has already been spoken for too :) , but the Mayor would like to invite everyone to come out to SEVHS and take a look at the wonderful dogs and cats we have for adoption.

The mayor is such a great supporter of the shelter, and we are thankful for his generous spirit and commitment to our humane society.

So, jump on board with Mayor Hathaway, and come out and see what’s in store for you. I’ll let you in on a little secret; we have more puppies coming that will be available in just a couple of months. You won’t want to miss seeing them. Hathaway and his siblings have holds on them, but they officially go up for adoption on May 14th. Thank you Southeast Volusia for making us such a great home to all the unwanted animals, and thank you for your commitment and support in helping us find them all homes.

Spotlight on Camille Dickinson

LUV alias Camille

This week’s spotlight is on Camille Dickinson. Camille has been involved in SEVHS for about 30 years, spending just about all of those years serving on the Board of Directors. Camille has worn our mascot “LUV” the big black and white dog costume for over 20 years. I don’t think anyone could take that role more seriously than Camille.
