HSOV They Light Up Our Lives fundraiser

More than 100 pets were honored and memorialized through the ninth annual They Light Up Our Lives fundraiser for the Humane Society of the Ohio Valley.

A tree decorated with white lights memorializing deceased pets, colored lights honoring living pets along with many pet photos was displayed at American Flags and Poles throughout December.

A total of $860 was donated. Again, an anonymous donor matched the total. Therefore, the HSOV was gifted with $1,760.

The winner of the two tickets to this year’s Fur Ball was Jennifer Cain. Those contributing $20 or more were eligible for the drawing.

Thank yous are extended to American Flags and Poles store, Maretta Office Supply, HSOV, veterinarian offices, contributors, several downtown businesses and the anonymous donor for their participation in the fundraiser.
