Special Message from our Executive Director, Kimberly Laska
We are counting on your compassion, participation and generosity to help us raise money for this much needed renovation. Please help us continue to provide comfort and shelter to homeless dogs in our community!
*Donations of $250 or more will be acknowledged on a sign at our adoption facility.
For many years, our shelter has been doing the best we can to keep the dog kennels in decent shape and have gone through many different versions of repairs. Did you know that in the past seven years, Heritage Humane Society has housed and cared for more than 5,300 dogs? No wonder the kennels have been through so much. With our daily deep cleaning and constant use, any surface would wear down. We have a plan to improve our dog kennels and need your support in order for this to become a reality!
What is being renovated?
A total of 22 dog runs that can house up to 44 dogs will receive critical repairs.
When will construction begin and end?
The renovation work has already begun! We are planning on continuing these renovations during the next month. We will be utilizing other shelter space during the renovation process to house the dogs currently in our care. We also have fewer dogs in our care currently due to our decrease in intakes while everyone is home and our wonderful adoptions are still happening every single day.
How do I doante?
1. You can donate ONLINE.
2. You can mail a check to: 430 Waller Mill Rd., Williamsburg, VA 23185 (include in the check memo “Dog Run Renovations”)
What happens after I donate to this project?
Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent of the law, and you can dedicate your support to a pet or pet lover of your choice. At the end of this renovation (and when we have resumed normal operation) all of our generous supporters will be invited to celebrate this success and to enjoy the transformed and safe dog kennels. This is truly a win for all. Any funds raised over and above the actual cost will go towards additional improvements for pets in our care here at Heritage Humane Society.
