Thanks to the fundraising efforts of animal enthusiasts Bob and Kelly Detwiler, Hernando County Animal Services is the recipient of 60 new Kuranda heavy duty all aluminum dog beds. These beds are an upgrade to what the shelter had been using.
Animal Services appreciated the awesome show of community support for the animals. They state, “what a great group of people providing help and kindness to the animals at our shelter! There truly is no limit to what can be accomplished when we come together as a community.”
Bob and Kelly Detwiler spearheaded the campaign and with help from BOCC members, John Allocco and Jeff Holcomb, City Official Betty Erhard and Erin Daly with State Attorney’s Office, plus 30 other volunteers the bed delivery was a success.
After the delivery, Kelly Detwiler states in her Facebook post, “Everyday we see ugly on the news. You look into the eyes of some of the animals and they try to tell you their heartbreaking history through them. What people have done to them. THEN… we have the community of animal lovers, who came together in 5 days and we raised $5,600! Something I thought would take months to do. This amazing project restored our faith in people, it was absolutely inspiring. We hope those beds last the shelter years, and bring the deserving furbabies some comfort.”
