The newly-opened Sixth Sense Brewing Co. of Jackson, with the support of the community, recently completed a successful fundraising project to benefit the Jackson County Dog Pound and the Jackson Humane Society and all the animals the two organizations support.

First, throughout the month of April, Sixth Sense donated $1 of every Sixth Sense dog treats and Puppy Luv ale pints which were sold to the local Dog Pound and the Humane Society. Sixth Sense also accepted donations of dog food, cat food, cat litter, cleaning supplies and other items needed and used by the two organizations. Sixth Sense provided free T-shirts as an incentive to the donors.

The culminating event came on Saturday morning, May 6, when Sixth Sense organized and conducted a Dog Walk, which involved about 50 dogs along with their owners. Starting at the brewery, which is located at 175 E. Main St., next to Arch and Eddie's Gathering Place, the humans and canines walked through the downtown area to Manpower Park. That Saturday evening, Sixth Sense hosted a concert with Ben Davis, Jr. and Erik Miller providing the music.

Sixth Sense Head Brewer Mike Davis was gratified by the response and results. He reported that between dog biscuit sales, sales of the Puppy Love Pale Ale and cash donations, there were several hundred dollars in cash donations to go along with piles of food, cleaning supplies and other pet-related products.  

Davis commented to The Telegram: "The generosity of our community when it comes to getting on board with a good cause is one of the greatest things about living in small-town America.  We are proud to play a small role in supporting our furry friends and those who work tirelessly to take care of them."
