Lynchburg Humane Society Raising Millions

Posted:

Lynchburg, VA-  The Lynchburg Humane Society is much closer to their fundraising goal for a new facility.

They took a $1 million challenge in March when an anonymous donor committed to matching a million dollars.

Now, $2 million later, the Humane Society is just under half a million dollars short of their goal of $4.8 million.

They want to meet their goal by the time they break ground at their new facility on Graves Mill Road next month.

"We wanna be a regional adoption center so that today animals that are euthanized or put down instead find wonderful homes. Guys like this deserve a home, " said George Dawson, Co-Chair of The Capital Campaign.

The new facility will have new and improved kennels, an education facility for summer camps and birthday parties, and a new health area so that animals will be able to be treated for diseases.  They hope to have the building finished by this time next year.

If you would like to donate, you can visit their website at aboutthepets.com, or you can stop by the Humane Society and donate or pick up a pledge form.
