It was Giving Tuesday this past week. It kicked off the charitable season where residents are encouraged to support local (and beyond) non-profits. A local, successful non-profit is the Cache Humane Society (CHS). Last August, the organization discontinued its contract with Logan City.
The city and the police department went in another direction to reunite lost pets back to their owners. But things continue to remain busy at CHS, according to Executive Director Stacey Frisk. On KVNU’s For the People program last week, Frisk said they have their on-going spay/neuter clinics that are very affordable.
“If you’ve got that new, furry family member, give us a call and let us get them on the schedule We’ll get them vaccinated, we’ll get them micro-chipped. The things we want to do to help you keep your pet healthy and happy,” according to Frisk.
Education programs for youth continue, such as the PAWS Academy After-school Club for 7 to 12 year-olds. And on Sunday, December 9th it’s the annual Fur-ever Home Holiday Brunch, a fundraiser for CHS held at the Logan Golf & Country Club. Frisk says all the money goes directly to helping animals.
“Every dollar raised there helps care for the animals between the day they come into the shelter and the day they get adopted, which as a no-kill shelter. We hope that their time with us here is short and enjoyable, but we certainly do have animals that are here in the shelter with us for months.
“We try to make sure that their stay here is as enjoyable and social and pleasant as possible. That’s really what this brunch helps us do.”
The cost for the brunch is $75 in advance, $85 the day of the event. You can get more information at CacheHumane.org
