I have awesome news! This week, we received our first grant! It is a Pedigree Foundation grant that we applied for during September and it is specifically for “Shelter” use.  I got the news on Wednesday that we had a check for $891! Many thanks to the Pedigree Foundation for awarding this grant to the Humane Society of Jackson County’s Raise the Woof campaign. YEAH!!

Also, If you were thinking of giving an engraved brick as a Christmas present, there is still time! They can now be purchased at the Humane Society’s thrift store, ReTail, or by mailing in your order form. ReTail also carries the brick stress relievers to commemorate your purchase. Personalized certificates are available too.

With the end of the year approaching and the tax season upon us, I hope that you consider a donation to the Raise the Woof campaign for your last minute charitable giving tax deductions.  We are SO close to having a piece of land. I hope that in the coming days I can tell you that will officially be on the agenda for the Board of Commissioners meeting.  With the architects at Urban Design Group ready to go, once we have the land, the only thing that will be holding back the building is funding. If you are interested in supporting the shelter project, now is the time! We need your donations to continue to move forward with making Jackson County a better place for homeless animals.  Donations can be made here or checks can be mailed to HSJC, PO Box 567, Jefferson, GA 30549.
