WCGHS $24,000 Challenge
I want to thank you for your partnership with West Columbia Gorge Humane Society and let you know how much we appreciate all the support we received in 2014.
One of our greatest wins this year was the adoption of Kona. Kona was with us almost two years before he found his forever home. As a 10 year old lab mix, his options were limited as many folks do not want to adopt older dogs or dogs that do not get along with other animals. No matter how hard we tried, we could not find him a place to call his own. Good news arrived last week and we celebrated when his new family came to take him home to start his next adventure. We are so excited to share his great adoption story with you.
Sometimes the perfect fit takes a bit of time, but that is what makes WCGHS special. We care for each and every animal and want to find them a perfect forever home. Generosity of friends like you makes it possible to create these wonderful connections.
Love has no time limit when it comes to finding homes for these precious animals.
We have a challenge before us and we know you can help! Our generous supporters have offered to match every donation made to WCGHS up to $24,000! Whether $5 or $500, your donation will help us meet this challenge! Your $250 donation becomes $500!
DONATE ONLINE: 2014 Year End Matching Challenge
Your generosity has helped care for hundreds of animals. Special cases like our one eyed Mao we will never forget. Our beautiful calico had an eye injury and the owners took her in to be euthanized. She made her way to us after surgery and before the two year mark, she found a home with a family that cares for her and she has no limitations and is thriving.
In this season of giving we ask for your help.
As a shelter that works tirelessly to end unnecessary euthanasia we encounter situations where medical treatments make it possible to save a life. Medical expenses make up the largest portion of our budget. Your gift today will make it possible to save more lives.
I want to thank you for your support! We would not be able to continue without your kindness. I wish you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.
