This holiday season, WALY 103.9 FM teamed up with the Central PA Humane Society and Mending Hearts Animal Rescue to find “furever” homes for some of their dogs and cats!
We featured a different pet every weekday from December 7 through December 22, 2017. All the pets had pictures and bios on our website, and were part of a daily feature weekday mornings at 7:30 with animal lover and morning show host KC O’Day.
And our community responded! Of the original 12, 7 were adopted in that time period! As pets were adopted, we added more to our list and they found homes too!
We also included holiday wish lists on our website for both shelters, resulting in donations of much needed supplies at the Central PA Humane Society and Mending Hearts Animal Rescue.
Looking ahead, WALY 103.9 will continue to look for creative ways to partner with our area shelters to support their mission of finding homes for the lost, unwanted, or under-cared for dogs and cats right here in Central Pennsylvania.
Special message from KC: “Thank you for being a community that cares about our furry friends! Animals are my passion, and I spend much of my free time volunteering at Mending Hearts. Sometimes that means cleaning cages, which is a labor of love for me. Your contributions and support matter. Both rescues rely on your generosity to keep running, to keep caring for pets looking for their new, forever homes, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your support.”
