Raising money for the Greater Nashua Humane Society
To my family and friends,
Every year about 5 to 7 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide. About 3 to 4 million of these animals are euthanized, 60% of dogs of 70% of cats. For the past 2 years, I have served on the board of the Humane Society for Greater Nashua as both president and a trustee. Animal protection issues are very near and dear to my heart. Twenty years ago, long before I became involved with the Humane Society for Greater Nashua, my wife Linda and I came upon a pregnant stray dog at the Greater Nashua Humane Society that they were unable to take in. Weeks later we delivered 10 puppies in our living room. The Humane Society for Greater Nashua found homes for all of these puppies (and we ended up keeping two puppies and the Mom). Since then, our family has rescued countless animals from shelters including cats, kittens, rabbits, puppies and even pregnant dogs, which have all been part of our family and grown up with our children.
Humane Society for Greater Nashua truly cares about the wellbeing of all animals and people. Every year we care for thousands of animals and keep as many as we can from being harmed and/or euthanized. We would love to care for even more animals, but we are currently well over capacity within our current walls. To help us reach our goal of a new facility where we can care for more animals and provide better treatment for our animals, please donate to my page. This coming weekend we are having our largest fundraiser of the year- Walktoberfest. I have set a goal of raising $1500 specifically for this event. There are only three days left to receive donations and I would greatly appreciate anything you are willing to give. Again, this organization is very near and dear to my heart. I believe these animals deserve a second chance.
