Adoption Angel Lock-In 2017

Adoption Angel Lock-In 2017 Recap

Adoption Angel Lock-In 2017 was a huge success thanks to YOU! You helped HSNEGA raise over $47,000 for rescues!! 49 participants were #LockedUpForGood with rescues at HSNEGA until their “bail” was raised! All funds raised went to lowering adoption fees, purchasing enrichment items for the rescues and purchasing the food and care that each rescue needs to be healthy and happy!

“We’re being #LockedUpForGood”

“I understand a little better what the dogs have to endure being caged inside for long periods of time. I am an old man so most of my running and jumping days are in the past but even I felt how much my bail buddy, Rocky needs to be outside, running, playing and just getting more movement and activity that what can be had in the kennel. The other is more an appreciation of the staff and volunteers at the HSNEGA. In general, Rocky stayed by me, either to be petted, or play ball but when the folks from HSNEGA walked by his attentions (and affections) went to the staff or volunteer that was in the area. In my mind his actions speaks to just how well cared for he is by the folks there.” – Perry Daughtry

Another exciting announcement: HSNEGA was able to find a sound system for less than anticipated and with the extra funds YOU raised over the $45K, we purchased it for the pups. The system is now installed in large dog room to provide enrichment to the rescues!! Click here to see how it helped our pups in just a FEW HOURS because of people like you! We encourage you to come visit the rescues and see for yourself!

“I had a great day locked-up at the humane society. Freya + Kol deserve a loving home. It’s an extraordinary experience to be stuck in a kennel and feel what these dogs feel. To watch people walk by and overlook you. To watch dogs go past your kennel and not be able to play with them. To want someone to just show you a little love. To want to sleep, but it’s so loud and you’re so scared that you can’t. To be on a cold floor instead of a warm bed. To not know what true love is… It’s something everyone should experience. . .Maybe then you will save a life…” – Britanny Beacham of Beachin’ Biscuits

If you’re looking for your forever friend, there are many other rescues, DOGS AND CATS, with lowered adoption fees still looking for their forever homes! Stop by HSNEGA Tues-Sat 10 am-5 pm and Sun 12-5 pm* AND/OR visit to find your next forever furry friend! Adoption policies still apply to all animals with Adoption Angels

See what some of our participants had to say about their experience with the Lock-In in the video below!

Again, HSNEGA cannot THANK YOU enough for all that you’ve done for the rescues!! It could not be done without YOU!!
