We received a BIG check the other day. It was for $1,000, which was big in its own right. But it was also big in that it was about 6 times the physical size of a normal check, which is always fun!
Labhart Miles Consulting Group, a San Jose-based tax consulting firm, just marked their 10-year anniversary of being in business, and is celebrating by giving a $1,000 check to one of their favorite charities each month for the next twelve months. We were lucky enough to their April charity!
What does $1,000 mean to our animals? It can neuter 40 male cats (keeping hundreds of homeless kittens from being born). Or it can provide 200 vaccinations to keep our dogs, cats, and rabbits healthy.
Another way to look at it: on average, it costs Humane Society Silicon Valley $350 to rescue (or take in) a healthy animal, give her vaccinations and flea treatments, medically evaluate her, and feed and care for her until she gets adopted…so that big $1,000 check just helped us save 3 more lives right here in our community! We just had 3 little Chihuahua pups just come in the door, and we know exactly where that check is going.
Many thanks to Bill Labhart and Monika Miles for helping us save three young lives right here in our community! Three lives that will soon be adopted…and make three families’ lives very happy, very soon.
