Happy 2018! I hope your year has started well.
I wanted to reach out to you today to thank you for being a guardian angel to over 8,000 animals in need. Your support and trust are critical to the Winnipeg Humane Society; without your help we simply could not fulfill our mission to protect the welfare of animals and find new opportunities for them to thrive.
You may have read the stories we shared with you during our year-end campaign, but the rescue and saving efforts never stop!
Let me share with you how just in the past few days your support has been directly responsible for some truly amazing stories. Your help is their survival.
- On Monday we received a desperate phone call from a family that took on a dog from a friend that was destroying their house. They simply could not handle her. Thanks to you, this dog is now happily wagging her tail at the shelter and we are working on her behaviour to find her a perfect home. Your help is her survival.
- The same day, a very ill woman with terminal cancer has lived with a beautiful Himalayan cat for the past 12 years. She is now going into palliative care and won’t be back home, and nobody wanted a senior cat. Your help ensured that we can take this beautiful cat in, help him settle down – it is very tough for a house cat to get used to a new environment – and we will not stop until we find the proper home for him.
- That same Monday morning, I also had a very special visitor that reminded me of how your help is their survival. Meet Dalche. He is 4 years old, and was brought to the shelter because the previous owner could not afford medical care. We nursed Dalche back to health, but he was very unsure about being here. He spent a morning with me, and as you can see we got along really well. Dalche is ready to be adopted because your help ensured his survival.
These three stories are just one day, and they are just a sample of the work our fantastic team is doing thanks to YOU. So from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU.
If you have any questions or concerns about how your donation is being used, or how we are working hard to ensure that every single animal gets a fair chance to find the love and care it deserves, do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In service, and with immense gratitude,
