The Coulee Region Humane Society does not approve the admission of pet therapy dogs to a golf course, during the Rounds For Rescues fundraiser – WIZM 92.3FM 1410AM
Of course there will be 18 holes of golf – with cart. Breakfast. Chances of winning $ 25,000 and a Jeep for the top holes.
However, what could be the highlight of Rounds For Rescues next Friday at Fox Hollow Golf Course are the puppies.
Heather Drievold, executive director of the Coulee Region Humane Society, said no to taking the puppies with you to golf at the fundraiser. But mainly because Fox Hollow wouldn’t appreciate the extra # 2s in the rough.
But, yes, you will be able to get all the pets you want, otherwise.
“Yes, we will have our animal therapy teams there, so when you arrive in the morning, they will be there to greet you,” Drievold said. “They’ll be there hanging out when you finish.” It’s always a great joy to have around them – love, love, love to be in people’s eyes, these puppies. “

This is the second year that Drievold has organized rounds for rescues. She spent Wednesday at La Crosse Talk PM and explained how the fundraiser would help the Coulee Region Humane Society, which currently cares for 220 animals.
She also shared some of the weirdest stories they’ve experienced there, including having to go looking for an emu on the loose. No, not the emu running around a dentist’s office in West Salem – although they must have gotten it too (that conversation is here).
“There was another time, but it’s a different place, where we caught an emu running wild in the town of Onalaska,” Drievold said. “And he was actually wearing a pink collar. We found the owner and they had a matching pink leash and got it back.
However, Drievold added that this person was not casually walking his emu.
Another story she told must have had to do with students passing pot-bellied pigs through the dorms.
“We had the cutest pot-bellied pigs ever,” she said. “One of them was running down the hallway of UW-L. It was fun and interesting.
Of the 220 animals they currently care for, most are cats. Some dogs. A few guinea pigs. And a goldfish. There is always this solitary animal that is a little out of the ordinary.
Of course, a goldfish is one thing. But, not too long ago, Drievold said someone returned a baby brown anole – otherwise known as a lizard (Wiki link) – that was found in a garage.
An animal she ended up taking, using her children as an excuse because “they always wanted a lizard,” but her print of the anole seems to indicate who really wanted it.
“They knew he wasn’t from the area, they brought him to us and,” said Drievold, “I went ahead and adopted that one. close the cutest thing I have ever seen.
In addition to signing up for Round For Rescues, Drievold added that they really need help right now, including cat moms with their kittens. Something that, she noted, won’t be too difficult.
“As long as you take care of mom, she usually takes good care of her babies,” Drievold said. “We are providing all the medical care and supplies you would need to be part of this program. “
And while there are all-day pet therapy teams at Fox Hollow for Rounds for Rescues, Drievold added that they’re always on the lookout for more human and animal volunteers. To learn more about how to get involved, click here.
