Regents Rovers Raises More than $4000 for San Diego Humane Society
Thanks to the leadership of our team captain, Erin Brosch, and our team members, Stephen Friedman, Cecilia Wittmann, Darla Clark, Claudia Sanchez, Kim Poole, Norma Soto, Taryn Diehl, Alice Tiongco and Amber Santos…as well as their friends and family, Regents Rovers raised more than $4,000 for the San Diego Humane Society. Along with their pets, our team made the two-mile Walk For Animals at NTC Park at Liberty Station on May 7 to support the Humane Society and its transition within the last year to a no-kill policy.
In total, Regents Rovers had 26 team members, a remarkable increase from our team of three in 2015. We also raised more than eight times the money as last year.
Despite the drizzly day, pets and pet lovers showed up in force, and it wasn’t just dogs strutting their stuff. Cats, a goat, a pony and an iguana joined their canine compatriots, which included a dog riding a mini moped.
“I love this walk, because pets are a commonality between people – everyone loves their pet in the same way, no matter who they are or what they do,” said Erin. “Also, like pets, this entire event is very therapeutic; it’s easy to celebrate this cause.”
In total, the event raised well over $40,000 and counting. If you want to support the Humane Society, you can still donate through a Walk for Animals participant or directly to the Humane Society. The money raised provides food, medical care and a safe haven for thousands of animals in need. This year, the San Diego Humane Society expects to save the lives of more than 30,000 animals. It is one of just a small handful of Humane Society organizations in the U.S. with a no-kill policy.
“Not only are the animals protected at the San Diego Humane Society, they also have nice accommodations, with glass enclosures instead of cages, and amenities like beds and toys,” Erin added.
Thank you to everyone who walked and who contributed to our team’s efforts to raise money and help San Diego’s animals. Want to join our team next year? Erin says we’re “absolutely” doing it again! Aye aye, captain.
