Golden Belt Humane Society Wins $10,000+ from Members of Local Philanthropic Group
The Golden Belt Humane Society is thrilled to announce that they were voted the winner during the recent meeting of the 100+ People Who Care group in Barton County. This means that they will receive up to $10,000 or more in direct donations from members of the philanthropic group.
The Golden Belt Humane Society is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide housing and medical care to unwanted and stray animals, with the goal of placing those animals in their forever homes. By networking with rescues and working with caring foster homes, they can provide the love, stability, and training needed to increase an animal’s chance for a successful adoption. They also organize community events, such as the successful Adopt-A-Pet Program at Orscheln's in Great Bend, so that animals can spend a few hours outside of the shelter in the community, in hopes of finding adoptive families.
The quarterly pledges of the 100+ People Who Care Members will assist the organization in purchasing a new transport van that is safer and less stressful for the animals. To learn more about the Golden Belt Humane Society, please visit the organization’s Facebook page.
The next giving meeting for the 100+ People Who Care group will be held Tuesday, May 12th, 2020, at 5:30 p.m., at the Best Western Angus Inn Courtyard. At that time, representatives from the Golden Belt Humane Society will return to provide an update on how the organization is utilizing the $10,000 gift. Members will also vote to select and nominate local, charitable organizations to receive future funds. More details can be found on the group’s website, www.100bartoncounty.org, or on their Facebook page.
