Many thanks for animals

The 12th annual Paws for Love fundraiser for the Humane Society of Douglas County was held April 21 and raised almost $27,000 to provide food, shelter and medical care for stray, abandoned and neglected animals housed at the Superior Animal Shelter.  We are truly grateful for the monetary and in kind support of our major sponsors. Your generous spirit of giving back to our city is key to the success of this event.

A few of the success stories with shelter animals were featured in Sheila Keup’s PowerPoint presentation.  These touching and uplifting stories showcased some of the best “happy endings” over the past year.

Sincere thanks to Gene Demko for another entertaining shelter video shown during the evening, ever-popular auctioneer Lou Campbell, emcee Jason Manning, photographer Dan VanReese, artist Jana LaPine and pianist Chad Hanson.

Lastly, our guests deserve a round of applause. Your attendance is evidence of your generosity and compassion for animals in our remarkable community and your continued support is much appreciated. Please “Save the Date” for next year’s Paws for Love on April 27, 2019, at UWS.Beth Swanson,
