  Jacksonville Humane Society’s New “Build With Love” Campaign Seeks to Raise $50,000 by Valentine’s Day for New Shelter

Jacksonville, FL (February 1, 2017) The Jacksonville Humane Society (JHS) is launching an online campaign titled “Build With Love” just in time for Valentine’s Day. The campaign will raise money for JHS’ new shelter opening later this year. An anonymous donor has pledged to match up to $50,000 of any donation made from February 6th through February 14th.

“Build With Love” will feature the many different ways that JHS is hard at work to make Jacksonville a more compassionate community. JHS partners with local organizations, such as Hubbard House, The Bridge, and K9s for Warriors, to strengthen the foundation of our caring city. Our Pet Safety Net services help families hammer out solutions when times get tough, so that pets can stay in their loving homes. Our life-saving medical team construction second chances for pets in need, and our adoptions form new families with furry additions! Donors can be a part of our compassionate community and help us build with love. All donations will go towards funding the new JHS shelter. Let’s Build This Puppy!

“We are so fortunate to be located in such a compassionate community,” said Denise Deisler, executive director of the Jacksonville Humane Society. “We are proud to partner with so many local groups who give, and proud to support pets and families who need us. We are confident that Jacksonville will help us meet this goal!”

The Campaign for a Compassionate Community – the capital campaign for the new shelter building – has a goal of $15 million and has raised over $9 million to date. All donations made to the “Build With Love” campaign from February 6th to February 14th will be matched up to $50,000 for the capital campaign to build the new shelter.

Those interested in helping can donate online at jaxhumane.org/love or call 904-493-4566. Donations can also be sent via mail to 8464 Beach Blvd., Jacksonville, FL 32216.
