A well-known local foundation recognizes S.O.S with a life-saving donation
A philanthropic organization, which for now chooses to remain anonymous, contacted Roy and Lisa Haynes of Save Our Strays in Huntington, Vermont. After a thorough investigation, talking to S.O.S.'s veterinarian, interviewing happy adopters, and more, the benefactor bestowed upon S.O.S. a generous check.
"We look forward to assisting more homeless,/needy pets in 2009," says Lisa Haynes. "This is definitely a boost to encourage our mission, despite the rising costs of everything from vet care to heating fuel for the cat quarters."
Though the dollar amount and the benefactor's identity remain a mystery for now, Lisa and Roy Haynes feel honored to have been recognized for their life-saving work. The funds will help S.O.S. start the new year debt-free and cover some of the increased costs involved in doing rescue as full-time volunteers, which is what Lisa and Roy are. The money will pay for spay/neuter surgeries and everything else associated with pet rescue, such as food, cleaning supplies, and much more.How you can help:Click here
