Humane Society fundraiser a success

The 5th annual They Light Up Our Lives fundraiser for the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley was a success!

Over 60 contributors donating $2,770 honored and remembered over 290 pets. In celebration of the fundraiser’s fifth year, an anonymous donor matched donations collected. Therefore, the humane society received $5,540.

Strands of lights were placed on a Christmas tree at American Flags and Poles during the month of December. Animal lovers symbolically bought white lights to remember pets that have passed away and colored lights to honor living pets.

Thank yous are extended to The Marietta Times, ARC Resin, American Flags and Poles, Marietta Office Supply Company, businesses handing out forms, all those contributing to honor and remember their pets, and the anonymous donor for their support.
