YEAR END CAMPAIGN
HSBC has embarked on our Year-End Campaign. Our goal is to provide care and support for even more animals in need, by raising $10,000 by December 31, but we can’t do it without help.
Did you know that the Humane Society of Barron County spends more than $50,000 each year on medical expenses alone? Every animal that comes through our doors is seen by a veterinarian, fully vaccinated, dewormed, treated for fleas, ticks and heartworm, spayed or neutered, and receives any necessary blood work. In addition to routine care, many pets each year come to us in need of more specialized medical care. In 2022, we provided for the care of animals who had severe allergies, had been malnourished, injured by other animals, and hit by cars. As anyone who loves a pet knows, these bills add up fast.
Sweetheart came to HSBC around Valentine's Day with a broken leg. Sweetheart's leg was badly mangled and dyed purple. She was very shut down and it was clear she was not feeling well. We rushed her to the vet, where they spent several hours trying to save her leg; but there was too much damage and the leg had to be amputated. Sweetheart’s recovery was not an easy one, and she ended up needing another surgery two months later. Thankfully following the second surgery, she improved quickly and found her forever home.
Macho arrived at HSBC suffering from severe allergies. HSBC made modifications to his living space, provided Macho with prescription allergy medication, as well as a specialized diet. Unfortunately, the cost of this ongoing care meant that Macho struggled to find a home. To make matters even worse, while waiting for a home, Macho tore his CCL. This injury required visits to a specialist, pain medications, and ultimately a reconstructive surgery. We are happy to report that after 264 days Macho found his perfect forever home.
Care for animals like Sweetheart and Macho would not be possible without the generosity of supporters like you.
A donation of $100 could provide routine medical care for one animal at the Humane Society of Barron County.
Would you be willing to make a special year-end contribution to help us meet this goal?
