As fall semester classes come to an end, the community service club here at Hamilton called HAVOC (Hamilton Association for Volunteering, Outreach and Charity) hosted a special event featuring some the Rome Humane Society’s homeless dogs and kitties. This organization houses dozens of abandoned and neglected/abused animals from the Rome area (about 30 minutes away from Clinton, Hamilton’s quaint college town…hah jokes about the college town bit).
