Jim Nabors Co-Chairs Hawaiian Humane Society Fundraiser

NaborsHe made us laugh through his portrayal of a lovable gas station attendant/Marine in The Andy Griffith Show and its spin-off series Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., and on April 5th actor Jim Nabors made dog devotees smile as he stepped into the role of co-chair of Tuxes & Tails: Bow Wow to Hollywoof: A Night at the A-cat-emy, benefiting the Hawaiian Humane Society.

A long time supporter of Oahu’s animal welfare organization, the high-profile pet parent to three dogs (Candy, Daisy and Jimbo) was happy to play a part in raising $670,000 for the paws cause not only by attending the event at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel, but also by donating items to the¬†evening’s live auction. ¬†Thrilling the crowd of approximately 520 friends of Fidos and felines, Nabors also gave a “Sur-prise! Sur-prise! Sur-prise!” performance of “The Impossible Dream (The Quest)” to launch the nonprofit’s $18 million capital campaign for the creation of a second lifesaving facility.

Founded in 1883, the Hawaiian Humane Society provides comfort and care for more than 25,000 companion animals annually.

        I agree. Jim looks pretty healthy. I’ve also loved him since I was a child. My parents bought me my first Jim Nabors album in 1968, I was 15. I’ve Jim Nabors since then. He’s 83 now.
