FROM DUMPSTERS TO DIVAS - Pet Network Humane Society Announces Renovation Campaign

Pet Network Humane Society announces the Campaign to renovate its shelter, enabling the critical care and adoption of rescued animals.

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., March 4, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Back in the spring of 1998, the Pet Network Humane Society purchased property in Incline Village, Nevada, intent on eliminating the suffering of unwanted animals. By the year 2000, a 15,300 square foot structure opened its doors to the North Shore communities of Lake Tahoe. Ten thousand pet adoptions later, and endless euthanasia rescues, the facility is now in dire need of renovation after 15 rewarding years of service.

"I get emotional whenever I meet the beautiful animals rescued by Pet Network, being saved from imminent euthanasia." says Madylon Meiling, Board Co-Chair and major donor. "It breaks my heart that we have limited shelter capacity and our success rate can't meet the growing needs of helpless animals."

In October 2014, seven Golden Retriever, Black Lab mix puppies, about 2 days old, on the verge of death, were found in a dumpster with their umbilical cords still attached, needing their mother and whimpering for food. They were taken to an animal control center, who immediately had them transported to a non-profit animal shelter, committed and experienced with saving dumpster puppies, Pet Network Humane Society. They were given round-the-clock care and nursed back to health. All seven puppies have been adopted and are living diva lives, surrounded by an abundance of unconditional love and appreciation.

Pet Network Humane Society is a 501c3 non-profit animal welfare no-kill shelter. Needed repairs and replacements are mainly focused on heating, cooling, ventilation, security, safety and improved/expanded housing for increased canine and feline rescue, rehabilitation and adoption.

The "Pet Network Renovation Campaign" will officially kick-off on March 12th, 2016, with an invitational Donor Appreciation Event held at the Pet Network Humane Society building at 401 Village Blvd., Incline Village, Nevada. At that time, donors will have the chance to align themselves with "Naming Opportunities" and "Sponsorship Levels." Amounts are designated from $1,000 up to $150,000. The goal is to complete a much-needed renovation within a two-year period (2016-17), a goal that is dependent on private support and contributions.

Prior to the official kick-off, $135,000 has already been raised and matching donations are welcome. Renovations have begun but cannot continue without the support of a far-reaching campaign. The grass roots organization that was originally formed to become a leader in animal rescue, adoption and education, has earned a reputation that supports its mission: "Through compassion, respect and responsibility we will provide professional programs and services that benefit the animals, and animal lovers, of our community" – and the world around us.

Pet Network Executive Director, Jason Stipp, stands strongly behind the responsibility he represents. "I am so very proud to be part of an organization that is deeply dedicated to animal rescue. Whether it's rehabilitating puppies from a trash receptacle or helping an abandoned mother give birth to her litter, we never give up on any animal. By renovating Pet Network it will allow us to continue the lifesaving work we do for years to come."
