For the past several years, we’ve donated to the Daughters of Toleza Scholarship, a NPO that assists young girls in Malawi get the financial support they need to attend school. This year we helped three young girls graduate and all are preparing to take the national college entrance examinations this month. Way to go girls!!
With a staff full of animal lovers, when we heard the Humane Society was in need of food, donating was a no brainer.
According to the American Humane Association, every year about 3.7 million animals are euthanized and the ASPCA says that 5 in 10 dogs and 7 in 10 cats in shelters are euthanized because there is no one to adopt them.
So, the other day when we saw a post on Facebook from our local Humane Society (Windham County Humane Society) asking for donations of dog and cat food we knew we needed to help out.
We took a trip to the store, hunted down the animal food section and filled a cart overflowing with food. When we brought it all by the humane society, the look on the staffer’s face was priceless. We even got a chance to meet some of the cats looking for new homes.
While we’re unable to adopt a mascot for Vermont Woods Studios, we hope the donation will help the society be able to focus on helping even more animals in need of a loving home.
If you’re looking to add a new furry friend to your family, we recommend, (after careful consideration that you’ll be able to care for the animal its whole life) stopping by your local humane society to adopt.
I’ve included a few helpful links if you’re looking to adopt:
