Thank you for all your generous contributions for the Wishbone Holiday Campaign!
$3,050 was raised to help these five very deserving families and their pets.
A special thank you goes out to Chris Fowler for contacting CCHS about making a donation to a family in need and sharing the story about the boy and his dog. His email helped bring to light to this program that was able to make a difference in both the givers and receivers in this selfless cause.
For those of you that made a donation or just passed on the email to others… we thank you for your help and know that you made a difference in the lives of many this holiday season! Until next year….
We have chosen our five Wishbone Families, please help sponsor a family:
Family #1 – The Southerland Family & their loving pets Sadie, Rusty and Lilly
Family #2 – The Cope Family & their loving pet Chevy
Family #3 – The Montz Family & their loving pet Teddy
Family #4 – Ashley & her loving pet Cosmo
Family #5 – Leirer Sulli & her loving pet Charli
Family #5 – Update: Charli had his life saving Heart surgery and is doing great! This is a front view of Charli with his bandages and getting loving kisses from his family.
Last year we received an email about a little boy who’s only wish for Christmas was a gift of a bone for his best friend; his dog. Our hearts broke when we learned this little boy didn’t even know where his next meal was coming from.
Please join us in our 2nd Annual “Wishbone Holiday Campaign” to help five families in need this holiday season!
We are currently accepting submissions, please submit stories about families you know have fallen on hard times and have pets in need. Read more …
Thank you to everyone who attended the 3rd Annual Give a Dog a Home Gala held at the Dallas World Aquarium Oct 13, 2012. The event was a huge success with $60,000 raised for the new Adoption Facility.
Thank you to the event’s premiere sponsor Arthur Benjamin, founder of American Dog Rescue. Arthur helped raise even more money for CCHS through his gift matching program! Roy and Kristine Mohr with Spec’s Wine Spirits and Finer Foods donated all of the wine and beer for the event and held a fund raiser just before the event selling hot dogs at their Dallas location to raise $400 for CCHS! Our Silver Sponsor, CCHS fosters Phil and Silvana Smith have always been amazing supporters of CCHS. We thank you Smith Family for always being there to help fur kids in need and fuel our fundraising efforts.
Our Bronze sponsor Platinum Pet Memorial Service located in McKinney, TX. PPMS helps ease the stress of the bereavement process for families grieving the loss of a beloved pet. Thank you to Capital One Bank’s Plano location for sponsoring the $1,000 Visa Gift Card raffle that was donated back to CCHS by the winner, Arthur Benjamin.
Paradise for Paws also donated a week stay at their luxurious report complete with doggie pedicures, massages, a bone shaped pool and airport transfer to and from the day care!
Of course the night would not have been complete without the Justice Award presentation from last years winner Animal Rescue Corps to this years winner Texas Humane Legislative Network. To end the night, doggie gear donated by PetsMart was given to all of the guests along with gift bags and VIP guests received wine and additional parting gifts.
We thank you all for your support and we look forward to seeing you all next year!
