Give to the Max Success!
📣 We continued to receive donations after Give to the Max Day, 2023 so our final total for this year’s fundraiser is just over $70,000!!! 🎉 We are truly overjoyed! Thank you. 😊
💚 THANK YOU! Thank you for following our stories, and supporting the work we do with the vulnerable cats and dogs in our communities. 💚 Just one more story to let you know who you are helping helping when you donate to BENCHS. Two weeks ago, Spinna came to us from the Mankato Police Department. She was stray, hurt, and needing our help. Her back leg was bleeding and she was wobbling as she struggled to take three steps. She needed a vet appointment the next day and the fine folks at MN Valley Vet Hospital squeezed her in for us. She had a broken pelvis and will need to be in foster for 4 more weeks at least. ❤️🩹 Spinna means “purr” in Swedish and that is how she got her name. Despite the pain she had to have been in, Spinna continued to purr during her first evening at BENCHS. It was as if she were saying, “Thank you! Thank you for helping me!” 💚
After counting the last donations, our Give to the Max campaign raised over $70,000! 🎉 We didn’t quite make our $80,000 goal, but we still know that every dollar donated will be there to help others like Spinna who need our help. 🎉 So thank you to everyone who donated! Thank you for supporting our cause and mission! From all of the cats and dogs at BENCHS, “Thank you for helping us!” 💚 🐱💚 🐶 💚
