The Humane Society of Northeast Georgia is launching a fundraising campaign, according to AccessWDUN.
“It kicks off with ‘Giving Tuesday’ where we try to raise about $30,000 in one day,” Mayfield said. “Our board matches that campaign … And then after that, it rolls into what we call our ‘PAW-liday Giving Trees’, which is more of items that the shelter needs like blankets, and bleach and food and leashes and things like that. And then we also include in that our ‘Home for the Holidays’, where we really try to get our animals out of the shelter for the holidays to relieve some stress, and maybe some Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner with the family.”
Mayfield explained that the organization hopes to use the funds and donations from the campaign to combat overpopulation within the shelter.
“We are seeing that intakes of animals are up across the nation and adoptions are down across the nation,” she emphasized. “And it’s no different for us at the Humane Society of Northeast Georgia. And so with these funds, you know, we do several things.”To learn more about the shelter’s mission, view adoptable animals, or apply to be a foster, please visit https://humanesocietyofnortheastgeorgia.org.
