The Humane Educational Society has made the difficult decision to cancel our 7th annual Drives for Lives Golf Tournament. The 7th annual Drives for Lives Golf Tournament will now be held June 14th 2021 at Black Creek Golf Course. Funds raised from this annual event are desperately needed for our shelter. However, the health of our community must come first.
Canceling our Drives for Lives fundraiser is devastating for our organization. Drives for Lives is the second large annual fundraiser HES has cancelled during the COVID-19 crisis costing homeless pets over $150,000 in much needed donations.
The Humane Educational Society is entering into what animal welfare professionals call “kitten season”. Shelters see an exponential increase in orphaned kittens beginning in spring and lasting through late fall. Soon our shelter will be inundated with hundreds of orphaned kittens. This time of year is incredibly taxing on our resources and staff.
Hundreds of kittens will need to be bottle fed every three to four hours. Kittens are also prone to respiratory infections and other illnesses driving up medical expenses at our shelter. This time of year is the most difficult to manage financially for our shelter. The loss of fundraising revenue is devastating to our ability to help the most animals possible.
Community members can help homeless animals during this difficult time by making a donation or filling out an application to become a foster parent.
Join the Humane Educational Society Monday, June 22nd at The Black Creek Club for our seventh annual Drives for Lives Golf Tournament. Registration will begin at 11:30 am with complimentary lunch and beverages being served; shot gun start will begin at 1:00 pm sharp. Participants will receive complimentary alcoholic and nonalcoholic beverages, HES golf balls, koozies, prizes for the top three teams and more. Additional opportunities to win prizes throughout the course. Mulligans and skirts available for purchase at registration.
