Restaurant helps Humane Society achieve its mission


In September, Columbia Restaurant patrons can help the St. Augustine Humane Society.

Simply dine at the restaurant during the month of September, choose the St. Augustine Humane Society from the list on the ballot provided and enjoy your meal. The Gonzmart family, founder of the Columbia Restaurant, will donate a portion of the check to the St. Augustine Humane Society.

Since the program’s inception, the Columbia Community Harvest has given more than $3 million to charities in cities throughout Florida.

The St. Augustine Humane Society promotes healthy, lifelong pet ownership by serving the medical and rehabilitative needs of companion animals in the community.

“Our programs are designed to strengthen human-pet relationships by reducing the need for pets to enter shelters,” said Executive Director Carolyn Smith. “Through generous support from the Columbia and our community, we can continue to work diligently to encourage the humane treatment of animals, avoid overpopulation and prevent animal suffering.”
