September 20th, 2014 marks the Fourth Annual Ride for the Dogs Poker Run. We are excited to see our old friends who have participated from the beginning and to make new friends. We have set a goal of 100 riders this year! Through various means of marketing, we are planning to reach more people who care about the homeless dogs at the Caring Hands Humane Society and Ride for the Dogs.
This event is important to the Caring Hands Humane Society for fundraising as well as increasing awareness about the homeless animals in our area. If you have pets, you know how expensive veterinary care can be. Now imagine that bill for over 2,000 animals! That is how many homeless dogs, cats, and other companion animals come through our doors every year. As you can imagine, it takes a significant amount of funds and resources to provide quality medical care for each homeless animal.
Our journey toward a NO-Kill community depends on donors, adopters, volunteers and advocates. A NO-Kill community is one where the bond between humans and companion animals is so strong that the only animals dying are dogs and cats that are irremediably suffering, are sick or injured with a poor or grave prognosis for rehabilitation, and vicious dogs with a poor prognosis. The resources you provide will help raise funds for medical care, public education, adoption promotion, housing, daily care and rehabilitation of homeless animals from the Harvey County area.
