Hampden-Sydney's Sigma Nu Eta Pi Chapter raised over $1,600 for SHARC (Sigma-Nu/Hampden-Sydney Animal Rescue) with a Louisiana crayfish boil during Greek Week in April. Since 2007, SHARC has helped rescue an impressive number of pets and many H-SC, Longwood, and Farmville families are now happy owners of SHARC dogs and cats. “The proceeds will be used to build kennels at the SHARC house to provide housing for the abused and abandoned dogs that SHARC will focus on nurturing and domesticating this upcoming fall,” said John Sharp, Sigma Nu brother and president of the Student Body at H-SC.

 Sigma Nu brothers are working on a website that the SHARC program can utilize to reach the greater Farmville community. “I think a web search for local animal lovers will get a lot more pets adopted,” says Watt Mountcastle, a rising junior and brother of Sigma Nu.
