Caring for over 5,000 animals annually, the non-profit Fox Valley Humane Association is an area leader in animal care, welfare, and education. In support of our vision that “No animal need in the Fox Valley goes unmet” we’re took on a challenge called, “$100,000 in 100 Days Challenge Match.”
Mary Beth Nienhaus, local philanthropist and supporter of FVHA, stepped forward with a large pledge to match donations, up to $100,000 from May 19th – August 26th. All proceeds would benefit the expansion of the Fox Valley Humane Association’s Veterinary Wellness Center. This expansion will help FVHA meet the demand for in-house services and quality low-cost veterinary care for the community.
Thanks to an extremely generous $50,000 donation by Petsmart and a number of other wonderful last minute donors we reached a total amount raised of $126,655. With Mary Beth Nienhaus’s incredible match of $100,000 this challenge brought FVHA $226,655 to help fund the expansion of our Veterinary Wellness Center. This will give us the ability to enhance and save the lives of countless more animals in our community and we cannot thank you enough!!
