Dear Humane Society Friend,
The 70th Anniversary of the Humane Society of Pulaski County was more than a celebration. It was a Renaissance! With an increase in intakes, adoptions and spay/neuters, it was a remarkable record-breaking year for the animals. Along with that came a rejuvenated rescue effort which included a large scale hoarding/abandonment case, and numerous animals who came to us suffering with injuries from cars or gun shots, life-threatening diseases, and abuse or neglect. Holding true to our mission, we took in animals from crowded city shelters when the population outgrew their capacity. Because we do not place time limits on life, we turned what would have been regrets into extended hope. Our many 2016 stories of hope included the following:
|MILO, a lovable kitty, was shot with a pellet gun that penetrated through two of his legs. Though one leg could not be saved, a specialty surgery was performed on the other to ensure mobility for this sweet cat.|
|PEGGY was rescued from serious neglect and hoarding. Her lack of trust in humans made her a flight risk until she found the perfect family who now call her “their little ray of sunshine.”|
Although we are an animal welfare organization, our work significantly impacts humans as well. Our long-running and ever-growing Puppy Love Program has touched hundreds in rehabilitation and retirement homes. By the middle of 2016, we were visiting eight different long-term care facilities. Moreover, growing up in a world where negativity is fashionable and violence is often seen as a solution, young people are taught compassion at HSPC. We have seen a steady growth of involvement with youth groups and schools, and we plan to further expand our Humane Education program. Finally, we receive countless Adoption Success Stories every year, validating the rejuvenating power of living with a rescue.
As we begin our next decade, I challenge you to Join Us in our Renaissance quest. Since we receive no form of funding other than your kind donations, your new/renewed membership with the Humane Society of Pulaski County will help continue our no-kill mission. Also, please consider becoming a Rescue Partner through our monthly giving program to aid in saving lives throughout the year. Your support will further our commitment to helping desperate animals that others turn away, while enriching the human lives of those who love them.
