Fund raisers benefit the Valley Humane Society
Are you interested in helping Valley Humane Society achieve its goal of moving into its new building? Over the next few months we are holding three fund raisers to raise money and awareness for our building and programs.
First, a huge thank you to Pet Food Express in Pleasanton for hosting two of the fund raisers at the store.
There are two events in January that benefit Valley Humane Society.
Do you have a dirty dog? If so, Pet Food Express is the place to go. From now until Jan. 31, all of the money from dog wash tokens at the Pleasanton store goes to Valley Humane Society. You may use the tokens any time, just buy them in January.
Pet Food Express features state-of-the art self-service dog washes, with shampoo, apron, blow dryer and towels provided. Tokens are $15 or four for $11.25 each.
The second fund raiser the store is holding in January is a pet-food drive. Through Jan. 31, put pet food in the bins inside the store and it will be donated to Valley Humane Society’s Animeals program.
Animeals donates pet food to low-income families or homebound seniors. Monetary donations are welcome. Pet Food Express is at 1737 Santa Rita Road in Pleasanton.
The American Safety Academy also is hosting a fund raiser. At the end of February, the academy will hold four pet first-aid classes that cover topics such as recognizing an emergency, performing CPR and first aid, treating common illnesses or poisoning and administering medications. A session costs $50 and proceeds benefit Valley Humane Society. You can reserve a spot by calling 877-380-4277. The sessions will be Feb. 26 and 27, 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. or 2 to 5 p.m.
American Safety Academy is at 6500 Dublin Boulevard, Suite 100, in Dublin.
