Humane Society of Williamson County Hosts Bowl-a-Thon

Ten pins, four paws

Nothing perks up a dog's ears like the sound of kibble in the bowl … ing alley?

This Saturday, July 9, from 1 to 4pm, the Humane Society of Williamson County is sponsoring its third annual Bowl-a-Thon at Mel's Lone Star Lanes in Georgetown (1010 N. Austin Ave., 512/930-2220,

The HSWC (10930 E. Crystal Falls Pkwy., Leander, 512/260-3602, instituted a "no-kill" policy at its shelter in 2007 (something the Austin community knows a thing or two about), and it provides low-cost spay/neuter and vaccination services to all Central Texas residents, but those priorities don't come cheaply &ndash especially in these busy summer months, and in particular for a 501(c)(3) that receives no federal funding. The bowl-a-thon is an opportunity for individuals and businesses to contribute money to the cause while having a good time (the Chronicle is sending four of its own, this writer included, to aim for some turkeys for the kitties). The registration fee ($25, individuals; $100, teams of four) covers shoe rentals and three rounds of bowling.

Contact Lindsey Ortiz at with any questions, or check out for complete event and registration information. We're fully prepared to be (ahem) bowled over by the support this weekend.
