Bark Friday 2015

Midlands Humane Society (MHS) kicks off its Bark Friday campaign early with half price donations!

Everyone loves a bargain, and Midlands Humane Society has just the deal to stretch a donor’s charitable dollars this holiday season. Now through December 31, any amount donated will be doubled dollar for dollar up to $35,000, thanks to a generous matching donation.

MHS opened on January 2 of this year, replacing the Council Bluffs Animal Shelter. Since then, the number of animals adopted has more than doubled and the number of pets reunited with their owners has tripled. “Although we’ve had some challenges this first year like any start-up organization, the statistics say it all. Having a humane society in Council Bluffs has made a huge positive impact on the lives of stray and homeless animals in our community” stated Michelle Miller, Board Member and Marketing Chair.

“We are so grateful for the community’s continuing support. Like most nonprofits, over half of our budget is dependent upon donations and we couldn’t do this important work without this support.”

Thanks to this $35,000 matching donation, one could say this is the best charitable deal in town. Whether a donor gives $10 or $1,000 their gift will be doubled to provide shelter and medical care for the animals at MHS while they wait for their forever homes.
