One Big Wag featuring Hank3 benefiting Happy Tales Humane

Name: Hank Williams 3rd

What is your job? Musician

What social causes are most important to you? I do Homes for the Troops, trying to help out soldiers who were badly injured to make sure they have the special ramps or modifications they need for their houses – and I also try to do as much as I can for animals.

What charities do you support? Happy Tales in Franklin, TN and Homes for the Troops.

Why do you have a passion for this one in particular, is there a personal tie? I was raised on a farm most of my life, I tend to be introverted, and I feel at home with animals, they keep me active. I think of my three dogs as my kids.

As far as supporting troops, I’m not political, I try to stay away from politics in my music, Jello Biafra does that well, but I want people to forget about problems when they listen to music. Ozzy once said when a soldier returns, they should be taken care of for life. I don’t see that our troops are as taken care of as well as they should be when they come home injured so I try to help where I can.

Is there a particular way you would want to encourage readers to be involved? If you are looking for a pet, please go to a shelter, they are already available, and they need homes. Spey and neuter, and adopt! Or visit and try to help a family that has to find a new home for their pet.

How would you define social responsibility? Being responsible is your work ethic, are you being productive? Making your family proud?
