Betty Peyton, the director of the Humane Society of Madison County (HSMC), has been named as one of Sunny 95’s 2011 “20 Outstanding Women You Should Know.” The point of this contest is “to celebrate ordinary women who do extraordinary things.”

Betty has been working with the shelter for the past 10 years. Black and Orange has worked with Betty and HSMC for over five years, helping to spay and neuter area feral cats and asking the shelter to place friendly, adoptable cats when we didn’t have space for them. We’ve also partnered with them on various fundraisers and events, including Slobberfest.

From everyone at Black and Orange Cat Foundation, we would like to congratulate Betty for this huge honor.

The formal awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, February 17, at the Lincoln Theater (769 East Long Street) in downtown Columbus from 7-9 pm. This event is by invitation only.

A grand public celebration will be held on Friday, February 25 at the Aladdin Shrine Center at 3850 Stelzer Road in Columbus from 4-8 pm. This event is open to everyone, so please come and congratulate Betty. Or if you can’t attend, send her an email at
