Sorority Sponsors Humane Society Fundraiser

Alpha Sigma Alpha is sponsoring their annual philanthropy Puppy Love for Tally April 14 through April 18 on the Quad to raise money for the Adair County Humane Society.

Puppies from the humane society will be stationed with members of Alpha Sigma Alpha from 11 a.m.- 3 p.m. on the Quad each day, including University Conference Day. Puppy chow will be sold on the Quad and donations will be accepted all week. All puppies are adoptable and in the past, several dogs have been adopted.

“Most people think they have to pay to play with the puppies on the quad and that is not the case,” said Leigh Doner, philanthropy chair of Alpha Sigma Alpha. “This is because we want people to come out and raise awareness because the puppies do not get a lot of attention on a day-to-day basis.”

The humane society is grateful for this annual donation as funds generally go to both medical bills and food for the animals.

“What they raise is a huge help, its about a month of medical bills or a month and a half of food for the animals,” said Missy Decker, humane society manager. “Also, we usually have great adoptions the week that they go over to campus.”

Puppy Love for Tally was started in honor of a deceased sister, Tally Stevens, who passed away in a car accident. The philanthropy was established to always remember Tally’s life and family. Tally had a strong passion for animals, which is why Truman’s chapter of Alpha Sigma Alpha established this philanthropy in conjunction with the humane society.  

To donate, stop by the Puppy Love table on the Quad during the week of April 14 or contact Doner at or 417.540.5507.
