Humane Society seeks grant funds          Send a link to a friend

Your support comments could help build an animal shelter for Logan County pets

[September 14, 2007] Hamburger Helper is giving away $100,000 for various "hometown projects." The Humane Society of Logan County has asked to be considered as one of the recipients. The society could receive up to $15,000 to be used toward building a shelter.

The petition for a "helping hand" reads:

Humane Society of Logan County started raising money to build a shelter in April 2006. Through dog washes, bake sales and other monthly fundraisers we have raised over $33,000. We also received $200,000 from a trust. A generous family is in the process of deeding our group 2.5 acres of land for our building. We still need to raise about $50,000 to build our shelter.

Currently our county's animal control euthanizes hundreds of dogs and cats each year. We desperately need a place for those animals to go.

We view this as more than just a place where dogs and cats will be given a chance to find a permanent home. It's a great opportunity to meet and be a part of a group of dedicated individuals all working for the same purpose, the love of animals. Our members come from all walks of life. This will be a place where families can volunteer to work together, schoolchildren can work with the elderly, college students can work with professionals, etc., etc. The combinations are endless, the outcome is priceless.

Our 200-plus membership is full of great people who may have never gotten to know each other if not for this common love of animals. With your help, we will be able to build a shelter that will bring our community together and give the dogs and cats a chance to find their forever home.
