Lee County Humane Society to hold annual campaign No More Wasted Lives

AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - Lee County Humane Society will hold the 17th Annual No More Wasted Lives fundraising campaign beginning Monday, Dec. 10 at noon at the Kroger on Dean Road parking lot. 

Lee County Humane Society Executive Director, Bobbi Yeo, will remain locked in a dog kennel, day and night, until the fund-raising goal of more than $26,000 is reached.

No More Wasted Lives is the shelter's largest fundraiser, and all proceeds from this campaign directly benefit the animals at the shelter.

Lee County Humane Society cares for more than 5,000 animals each year. Lee County Humane Society hopes to raise $5 for every animal that came through the shelter's doors over the past year. Lee County Humane Society cared for 5,374 pets in 2012, and its goal is to raise $26,870 in honor and memory of these animals.

Lee County Humane Society invites the entire Lee County community to visit Bobbi during her stay in the kennel and support the shelter by making a donation. Holiday cards will be available to send to friends and family acknowledging donations made as memorials or honorariums.  Donations to the Lee County Humane Society are tax-deductible, and all donors will receive a letter acknowledging their gift.

Lee County Humane Society is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the citizens of Lee County through animal rescue, the promotion of responsible animal companionship, and the elimination of pet overpopulation.
