The Regents Rovers were at it again this year, raising money for the San Diego Humane Society’s Walk For Animals event. We’re happy to report that, under the leadership of our own Erin Brosch, our team of 10 raised more than $1000! Overall, the event, a two-mile walk at Liberty Station in Point Loma, helped raise tens of thousands of dollars to support the vital work of the San Diego Humane Society.

Our team included Erin, Matt Fishman, Donna Provencher, Claudia Sanchez, Taryn Diehl, and Kim Flores from Regents Bank, as well as a few family members. While billed as “San Diego’s largest dog walk,” we also spotted a miniature horse, a pig, a couple of cats, some parrots and a goat.

Additional members of our Regents Bank team stepped up to the plate to support Regents Rovers with cash donations to the Humane Society, including Ben Lundeen, Mike Churchwell, Cindy Thomas, Bill Scheffel, Tom Schmidt, Mark Anderson, David Ekings, Linda Thomas, Jean Porter, Amber Santos, Nick Nattkemper and Victoria Vossler. We also had some customer support, for which we are very grateful.

The money raised through Walk For Animals provides food, medical care and a safe haven for thousands of animals in need. Each year, the San Diego Humane Society rescues tens of thousands of animals. It’s one of just a small handful of Humane Society organizations in the U.S. with a no-kill policy.

Erin, who has coordinated a team for this event several years running, is motivated by her love for animals. “I want to keep San Diego County a kill free county,” she said. “An animal’s love is unconditional, and you’re never alone when you have a pet.”

San Diego Humane Society’s next big fundraiser, The Fur Ball, is coming up on September 9, but you can support the Society’s mission with a contribution any time of the year. More information can be found at sdhumane.org.

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.screen-shot-2016-09-13-at-11-07-51-am 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.
