Lynchburg Humane Society Receives $15,000 Check

Lynchburg, VA - The Lynchburg Humane Society is a lot closer to its campaign fundraising goal thanks to a generous donation.

Thursday morning at the Downtown Holiday Inn, the Rotary Club presented a $15,000 check to the Humane Society.

An anonymous donor has agreed to match it, adding $30,000 to the humane society's funds.

"That helps us keep our momentum flowing. That helps to encourage other people to make contributions. And most of all it helps move us to that day when we will break ground on that new building to save more pets in our community," said George Dawson, co-chair of It's About The Pets Our Humane Campaign

The money will be used by the organization to help finance their new facility off Old Graves Mill road.
