Anonymous donor gives $25,000 to humane society

SPOKANE, Wash. - The Spokane Humane Society has received some much-needed help, thanks to an anonymous donor.

An anonymous animal lover dropped off a $25,000 cashier's check to help animals in need.

"It's very exciting to know somebody out there cares enough about animals to do something to help and that they believe in our mission and trust us to use their donation wisely," said Dave Richardson Executive Director. 

We are using our limited resources wisely, but like many businesses, we are making tough decisions, cutting expenses and reviewing our mission to keep our 112 year old organization relevant to meet the needs of our community's unwanted companion animals. We have made some great business decisions, cut expenses and are operating as thin as possible to ensure that donations from the community are stretched as far as possible

The shelter at 6607 N. Havana serves as a refuge for more than 3,000 abandoned, abused and unwanted animals each year. Assistance from area residents and businesses is an integral part of keeping the shelter open. Financial and in-kind donations as well as volunteer services are always needed.

"It hardly seems adequate to just say thank you for this very generous gift," he continued.  "This gift will greatly impact the animals in our care and it comes at a time when our kennels and cages are full," Richardson continued.

To make a donation or to get involved with compassionate care of animals in your community, please contact the Spokane Humane Society at (509) 467-5235.

Her 2-year-old son Liam was bitten.  “Actually, when he got bit he thought it was a bumblebee and then he was afraid of them,” she says. The bites
