Moultrie Colquitt Co. Humane Society Launches “Hearts for Paws” Campaign
MOULTRIE, Ga. (WALB) – With such a great need for adoptions, the Moultrie-Colquitt County Humane Society needs the help of the community to keep its shelter operations running smoothly.
On Monday, they officially launched the “Hearts for Paws” campaign.
Humane Society Vice President Steve Weber said most people don’t know all the work it takes to properly run and operate an animal sanctuary.
“Think about washing 88 dog bowls a day. If you’re thinking about owning a pet yourself, what are some of the daily chores you need to do every day? We know some of these aren’t the things you do. most enjoyable to do, but yet they have to be done,” Weber said.
Board chair Maureen Yearta said it was one of the reasons they started the Hearts For Paws campaign.
“We have food, we have to keep the lights on, we have to rinse and clean the kennels. So there’s a lot of money, as I said, that’s needed for the day-to-day operations of a good human society that doesn’t kill,” Yearta said.
Staff said they have set a goal of $35,000 and with the help of generous donors, everyone will benefit.
“Instead of coming in every month for more donations for this and the other, we’re trying to establish the fact that every February, every Valentine’s Day, human society is going to be away for a few weeks trying to raise funds for its operations,” Yearta said.
You can make a donation by visiting the Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society Facebook page.
