|Please Donate Today|
I don't usually use my blog as a platform for topics other than writing but I wanted to get the word out that our local humane society will have to close its doors at the end of this year if it doesn't raise enough money to stay open. Please visit this link to read an article on why the Beltrami County Humane Society may need to close their doors: http://www.dl-online.com/event/article/id/64175/
Like so many other organizations, the humane society has seen its donations go down significantly in this economy. Grant money has also become scarce. The Beltrami County Humane Society does not receive any Federal, State, County or City money to help support it. They have been able to run the shelter on donations, adoption fees and fundraisers since they have opened their doors. They currently have only one paid employee and depend upon volunteers to stay open. There is no waste of money - they just can't keep up with the rising costs of everyday expenses with their donations at a all-time low.
If you love animals and would like to help this organization to stay open, please visit their website (Below) to donate. Any amount would be appreciated. They need $40,000 to stay open, but if everyone donates something, we can reach that amount. This blog currently receives around 5,000 visits a month. Imagine if everyone donated $10 - that would be $50,000! I know that won't happen, but it is a great goal to hope for.
