Fundraiser for Raleigh County Humane Society

Dear Friend:

The Humane Society of Raleigh County will be hosting our 5TH annual Fur Ball on February 10, 2018 at the TAMARACK.  This is our single largest fundraising event and we have been fortunate that community interest has helped our attendance grow each year.

This cocktail party style event is our effort to reach a wider demographic of the community with the goal of garnering much needed financial support and help bring about increased awareness for the Humane Society and our ongoing mission to save animals and provide pets to loving families.

The Humane Society of Raleigh County has been “No-Kill” for over 3 years. This simply means that we have made the commitment to save every life possible and to not euthanize for space. We have gone from an 85% euthanization rate 3 years ago, to 0% today. Because of this commitment we have seen our intake numbers increase dramatically. In 2015 we took in 3221 dogs and cats. These numbers increased 1029 more than 2014. We have recently had to close to new intakes temporarily because of the huge number of animals that we are receiving. We are hoping to be able to reopen to public intakes in the very near future.

While “No-Kill” is the most desirable and humane place to be, it comes at a price. While the cost of simply feeding and housing the animals in our care would be staggering enough, you have to factor in basic vaccinations and wormer that are given to all new intakes that come through our doors (this is essential to helping prevent the spread of diseases), then add in any emergency medical cases that we receive. As you can see, it adds up quickly. And while we receive support from the City of Beckley and the Raleigh County Commission, it only covers about 29% of our needs each month. The rest we are dependent on fundraising and donations from people and businesses in the community.

That’s why we are asking for your support for this event. It can literally mean the difference between life and death for the thousands of animals that the Humane Society aids on a daily basis.

As outlined in the attached information, there are several sponsorship levels available. We have wonderful support with the community and we believe that your company would gain community support by sponsoring this event.

Thank you for your consideration in helping sponsor this event.

Sincerely,

Suzan S. Loving
President-Board of Directors
Humane Society of Raleigh County
