From Local Sources
The Dubois County Humane Society is the recipient of a $10,000 grant voted on by the public, the Dubois County Community Foundation announced today.
The grant is the culmination of the foundation’s “12 Days of Giving” campaign, which kicked off on Dec. 1 and concluded Tuesday with the public taking part in the voting process on the foundation’s Facebook page.
“The Humane Society was able to adopt over 600 animals this year which is a record for our organization and subsequently increased our vet costs,” said Andrea Hedinger Gramelspacher, president of the humane society. “This grant will offset all of our vet care needs which we must raise 100 percent on a local level.”
Leading up to the $10,000 grant, 12 organizations received a $1,000 grant. These organizations were then eligible for the public vote that took place Tuesday on Facebook. Over 1,725 votes were received and with 892 votes, the humane society was at the top.
The 12 nonprofits that received $1,000 grants were: Camp CARE, Celestine Community Club, Community CHEW, Dubois County CASA, Dubois County Humane Society, Girls on the Run, Memorial Hospital HOPE Garden, Southern Indiana Leathernecks Detachment, Southern Indiana Education Center, St. Patrick’s Celebration, St. Vincent DePaul and Survivors of Suicide.
