[ARCHIVED] Let's Help the Somerset Humane Society!

Somerset Humane Society

The somerset humane society provides a home and services for unwanted and stray animals.

More funding to help with the shelters' expenses in neutering, vaccinating and housing unwanted/stray animals in the community. They rely solely off donations of food, supplies and any amount of money people in the community can pay forward. They are always in need of supplies and food. They also rely on local veterinarian's donating their services. They have been providing services to the community for many years and its time they get the resources and updates they need.

This grant would be used to meet the shelters food supply need, as well as cleaning supplies and everyday items that the animals need to survive. Donated blankets, toys, leashes/collars, litter pans, and cat/dog food are a few of the supplies that need to be replenished often. The shelter also provides a home for "pocket pets" such as rabbits and guinea pigs, in which case cages and specialty foods are in need. As well as resources to pay for spaying and neutering of incoming dogs and cats. Repair of any structural damage and updates to their building are also at the mercy of donated services and time. With this grant Somerset Humane Society could not only fill their supplies fully but make any needed updates to their spaces.

We are the only cause from Maine running to be one of the top 40 to receive a $25,000 grant!
