As you may know, the Bangor Humane Society relies on donations from the public for over 60% of our funding each year. We receive no funding from local, state or federal sources and without your support we could not continue to provide quality care for the homeless and unwanted animals of our community.
Throughout the year we hold several different fundraising events, both ongoing and annual, in order to meet the needs of our animals. Continually, public support makes these events a success!
On Saturday, October 6th over 400 people and 300 dogs paraded along the waterfront in support of the Bangor Humane Society. Nearly $70,000 was raised to support the pets awaiting new homes at the shelter. The event featured a variety of vendors, hot dog stand, Adoption Runway Show, an agility demonstration by Carden Kennels, and a 1.5 walk through downtown Bangor. Mike Dow from Kiss 94.5 emceed the event. BHS would like to thank all of the individuals, donors and volunteers who supported the event. They would also like to send a BIG thank you to all of their event sponsors (See below) For more details on the event and to see photos visit the agency Facebook page and upcoming newsletter!
Pet I.D. Clinic a Big Success
Nothing breaks a pet owner’s heart like losing his/her best friend. To help ensure a pet’s safe return to their owner in the event of the unexpected, the Bangor Humane Society microchipped 127 pets on Saturday,July 21st!
On Saturday from 10 am to 4 P.M. public pet owners could have their furry friend micro-chipped for the low price of $20! Additionally, we offered several different styles of nametags that were available for the low price of $6 (+tax) a piece —engraving including!
We were proud to see so many pet owners here to take advantage of the clinic to help increase the chance of a happy reunion should their pet get adventurous and decide to explore beyond the comforts of home.
