Help Toledo Humane Society help animals in their biggest fundraiser of the year
The Pawvillion is going virtual, and the goal is to raise at least $120,000
TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - Today, the Toledo Humane Society is hosting its largest fundraiser of the year, but because of the pandemic, The PawVilion will be virtual. The money raised is used to help care for the animals, and there are a lot of serious medical cases at the shelter right now.
Investigators at THS respond to about 2,000 calls of suspected cruelty and neglect every year. The shelter is seeing a spike in those cases this month, and that’s one of the reasons why every dollar raised through the event is so critical.
“Every single dollar makes a difference. Our medical budget is the biggest part of our operating expenses. It is wonderful to work for an organization that supports that work and goes the extra mile for these cases. While we have tough cases on a regular basis, we have been able to have so much success and so many great outcomes. That is thanks to the generosity of our donors,” said Dr. Debbie Johnson, Director of Medical Services at the shelter.
13abc will be bringing you behind-the-scenes stories from the shelter throughout the day Thursday. The event usually raises more than $120,000 for THS.
