Saturday lunchtime saw yet another amazing food fundraiser at Friendship Manor in Lincoln.

The Humane Society of Logan County was serving up chili and veggie soup along with hot dogs to hungry customers.

The annual fundraiser is a big one for the HSLC, which runs a shelter and offers a second chance to animals that have been separated from their first families. 

Animals come to the HSLC for a variety of reasons. Some have been mistreated or abused, some are no longer wanted, and sometimes they come because a family has had a change of circumstances and can no longer care for them. Regardless of how they get there, once the dozens of puppies, dogs, cats and kittens arrive at the shelter, they are treated with love, cared for with medical attention, good nutrition, and given a comfortable place to live while they await their new "forever home."

Diners also have an opportunity to pick up a sweet treat to take home.

It has to take a lot of willpower to sell these delicious items instead of buying them all.

On the end of the table is a variety of treats for the canine of the family.

Soups were offered self-serve. Diners had a choice of hot or mild chili or vegetable soup, and a hot dog, drink and dessert.

Guests enjoy their meal.
