The Ausland family visit in 2007 to Best Friends Animal Society inspired them to initiate the Freekibble program to feed thousands of homeless animals across the country.
The story of their most recent delivery of over 20 tons of premium pet food to organizations from Dallas, Texas to Kanab, Utah appears on the Best Friends home page. HSDC was one of the lucky recipients of this generous program.
Humane Society of Dallas County now has help in protecting dogs against canine influenza virus (CIV), a highly contagious disease that spreads easily from dog to dog, especially those in close proximity. Our shelter received a grant for the vaccines as part of a Petfinder.com Foundation program to build community immunity against this respiratory infection. The foundation partnered with Intervet/Schering-Plough Animal Health, a global animal health company and makers of the NOBIVAC(r) Canine Flu H3N8 vaccine, to fund the grant.
Because CIV is relatively new, most dogs have not built up immunity to the disease. Dogs can get the disease by being exposed to those that have it, as well as playing with toys or drinking from bowls used by other dogs. People can also unwittingly spread the germ if they come in contact with infected dogs.
The Chad Golseth Agency has generously partnered with the Humane Society of Dallas County to help it reach its 2011 fundraising campaign goals. For the next 30 days, Chad will donate $10.00 in your honor to the Humane Society of Dallas County just for getting an auto quote. No purchase necessary! Their goal is to raise at least $1,000. If this goal is reached, Chad will donate another $500 on top!
Do your part by calling Chad's team at 817-540-1133. This offer expires Thursday, June 30th. Please call to help the animals of HSDC.
