Furry friends still need help
We here at Current write a lot about ways that people can volunteer, donate or generally work to make Carmel better.
Sometimes we don’t always follow up on the good that these charity events produce. But we shouldn’t take it for granted.
For example, the Humane Society’s recent Tinsel & Tails fundraising event that was held at the Ritz Charles in Carmel raised more than $150,000 to help animals in need, said city councilor Luci Snyder.
And as is the case with many charities, there is still more work to be done. That’s why the Humane Society for Hamilton County is making a push this month to find homes for 10 dogs and 10 cats that have waited the longest at its Noblesville shelter.
Anyone can adopt one of these animals for just $20. They’ll also receive an incentive package valued at about $1,000 as long as the adoption happens before the end of the year.
The package includes spay/neuter, microchip, a free wellness exam, at least one round of vaccines, 30 days of pet health insurance, a year’s supply of Flea/Heartworm medicine and a free annual exam and dental cleaning from Noah’s Animal Hospital in Carmel.
“The 20 animals featured in the campaign have been over-looked for far too long,” said Rebecca Stevens, executive director of the Humane Society. “Our wish this holiday season is that all 20 of these precious animals wake up Christmas morning in a home and not a cage.”
