From Nov. 11 until the end of the year, donations will be collected for Gimme Shelter, the end of the year fundraiser for Cache Humane. The money that is raised will be used to take care of the animals currently under their care and to cover the costs of keeping the shelter running.
“This year we are focusing on animals that have been surrendered to us because what people don’t realize is that a majority of our animals are here because people have just given them up,” said Roland Bringhurst, the executive director of Cache Humane.
Between the donations received in the shelter and those coming from its website, Cache Humane is halfway to its $8,200 goal. With the holiday season coming up, Cache Humane’s fundraising and volunteer coordinator, Cath Manrique, enters December with confidence.
“There are so many incredible causes to give to this time of year and all through the year in Cache Valley and right now people are deciding which to donate to,” Manrique said. “Often they feel as though they are deciding between giving to people or to animals, but what we want the public to realize is that when they give to Cache Humane, they are giving to both.”
Bringhurst said this year has been important for Cache Humane, offering programs that benefit both the people and the animals of Cache Valley.
“Obviously our main focus is the animals, but by providing low cost clinic services to the public and the pet food pantry to those who cannot afford to feed their animals, we can help out the people in our community as well,” Bringhurst said.
Donations will be taken at Cache Humane located at 2370 W. 200 N. in Logan, Utah and on its website at https://donatenow.networkforgood.org/CacheHumaneSociety.
