ARCATA - Sunny Brae Animal Clinic kicked off its annual month-long Giving Tree Fundraiser for local non-profit animal organizations.
Every year, for nearly 30 years, the Animal Clinic has collected donations for several non-profits of their choice.
This year, they picked "Humboldt Spay and Neuter Network, Humboldt County Animal Shelter, and Sequoia Humane Society.
The Animal Clinic asks each of these non-profits for a wish list and then sends that out to the community for anyone who can help.
Donations can be brought to the Animal Clinic or any of the non-profits. The collection period runs till the end of the month.
“One of the things I love most about doing rescue work in Humboldt County is that we all work so well together. The rescues, the shelters, the vets. It's a very very tight community with everyone looking over some personal differences at times, because the bottom line is the animals, and we all want what’s best for the animals. And so to be included in a veterinary hospital in something like this just really reinforces that feeling of we're all in this for the same thing, and the animals are the ones that benefit,” Jennifer Raymond, of the Humboldt Spay and Neuter Network, said.
