Sponsor a pet for the holidays

The Central Pennsylvania Humane Society is again offering a great way to help homeless animals this holiday season without actually adopting them.
CPHS is sponsoring a special “Sponsor a Pet for the Holidays” campaign involving direct donations for specific animals at the shelter.
For $100 (or more), individuals, families, businesses, office workers or groups of friends can sponsor a CPHS “resident” animal throughout the holiday season. The money will go directly to feed and care for that particular animal.
In return for the donation, CPHS will post a flier on each sponsored animal’s cage that notes the sponsorship. The flier can be directly attributed to the sponsor or “in memory” or “in honor” of a person, or animal of their choice.
The campaign kicked off just before Thanksgiving and runs through January.
“It’s a great way for people to help us get through this time of year and meet the high cost of utilities and gas for our vehicles,” noted CPHS Director of Fundraising/Public Relations, Dave Hopkins.
Sponsorships are available for any of the animals currently housed at the shelter while they wait for new homes.
People interested in sponsoring can choose a particular animal if they like or allow the shelter to choose. The shelter staff will place the flier on his/her cage. If the pet is adopted, the flier will move to another cage to denote the continuing sponsorship.
For more information on sponsoring an animal, contact Hopkins at 942-2477.
