Kelly Lang named Celebrity Spokesperson for Sumner County Humane Society

 

Nashville, TN (June 12th, 2014) - Leopard Entertainment recording artist, Kelly Lang announced today that she is partnering with the Humane Society of Sumner County as an honorary board member and Celebrity Spokesperson.

 
As a "no kill shelter", the Sumner County Humane society is currently celebrating it's 40th year as a 501-C3 non-profit organization and is proud to have Lang on board as a spokesperson. 
 
Lang and her husband, Country Music Legend, TG Sheppard, adopted a Maltipoo from the Sumner County Humane Society this past year. Lang says, "When I adopted our Dog, Sandy, I thought I was the one saving her life, but as it turned out, she has ended up saving and adding so much to mine."
Lang is also well known for her oil paintings of celebrity pets, which can be seen hanging in the homes of celebrities such as Oprah Winfrey, Barry Gibb, Olivia Newton-John and many others. 
 
 
Lang will be filming a PSA in support of the shelter and is slated to give a headlining performance at the Humane Society's annual "Puttin' On The Dog/Cat Holiday Gala" on November 1st at Bluegrass Country Club in Hendersonville, TN. More details will be announced at a later date.

 
Lang recently gained international attention when she performed "Islands In The Stream" with Barry Gibb at the Kenny Rogers Country Music Hall Of Fame Induction and again with him at the Grand Ole Opry in late 2013. Lang's other career highlights include a sold out performance at the Ryman Auditorium and winning Star Search. She has had her songs recorded by numerous artists including, Lorrie Morgan, George Jones, BJ Thomas, Ricky Skaggs, Jerry Lee Lewis, Crystal Gayle, The Oak Ridge Boys and many others. Her 2011 single "I'm Done" was a breakthrough video on The Country Network (TCN), and has received over 225,000 YouTube hits to date.

MINI-FEATURE ON ALEX GRUBB

Alex  Grubb is a volunteer at the Humane Society where she has helped for nearly two  years. She very much enjoys going out with her five best friends, loves great  food, enjoys James Bond, playing card games and basketball.

But  from there, she bears few similarities to other volunteers.

For  starters, being a senior at Merrol Hyde Magnet School sets her apart from many.  That, and loving math, especially AP Calculus, where she says, with her constant  sense of humor, her teacher is fun because they get to eat pie on Pi  Day!

Alex  is the youngest of three children of Terry and Betty Grubb, who live on the  Indian Lake Peninsula. Her mom is a Human Resources Specialist, her dad a  Healthcare Client Coordinator. Alex is heading for college in the fall in a  totally different direction from Mom and Dad. She is planning to attend East  Tennessee State University with a double major in Accounting and Finance and  future goals of being a Certified Financial Officer, or CFO, after spending time  as a CPA. She'd also love to run a non-profit organization.

I  have no idea how God will use me, so I am enjoying the opportunities I have been  presented with,” Alex said.

Alex  is close to finishing a 135 hour senior project where she spent her time  learning about the operations of the Humane Society, where she thought she'd be  doing “slow and dirty work.” It seems Alex was pleasantly surprised to find  herself enjoying the transportation of animals to the vet, greeting customers,  answering questions, but most enjoyable of all was watching customers progress  from walking through the front door to the end process of happily taking home  their new, treasured pet. The worst part? “Picking up poopy puppies in the  morning,”she said, but, “the friendly face lickings make it  worthwhile.”

Alex  is young, energetic, funny, intelligent, cute as could be, athletic . . . well,  we could continue to go on, but the idea is already planted. Alex is well  rounded. And she will stay the course to complete all her personal goals, if her  performance as an outstanding volunteer at the Humane Society is any  indication.

Many thanks to Kroger's in Goodlettsville for allowing us to host a material drive for HSSC!  We collected items on our "wish list" from the very generous Kroger Shoppers! Many thanks to Board members Peggy Miller and Nancy Key who worked with Charlie Key and Alex Grubbs.  Alex is a Merrol Hyde student who is working on her senior project and volunteers at the adoption center. Charlie is one of our junior volunteers that we can always count on!
