Loyal Biscuit Co. Donates $6000 to Pope Memorial Humane Society in Honor of George the Dog
George, a lab mix who turned 4 years old yesterday, is a proud PMHS alumni. Unfortunately, he suffered a very serious injury this past summer, when he was accidently hit by a vehicle. George is a very lucky little dog. Thanks to the amazing Dr. Peters at MidCoast Animal Emergency Clinic (MAEC) and her staff, George beat the odds and is still here with us today. He was inspired to “pay it forward” by rallying his friends to give back to the shelter. Boy, was he successful!
The funds raised came to a whopping $6000 as a part of George’s GoFundMe Campaign, matched funds from Loyal Biscuit, donations from Michelle Stanley of Arts Marine, and multiple in store donations. All of the funds raised have been donated to Pope Memorial’s “Molly Fund,” which goes towards the care of sick or injured shelter pets. Heidi V. Neal, owner of Loyal Biscuit Co. and mom to George claims “In honor of the veterinarians that saved George this summer after his accident, we wanted a way to give back to other animals in need. I am overwhelmed by the amount of support we received and honored to write this check for $6,000 for the Molly Fund at PMHS. These funds will be able to help, and save, animals that need medical services at the shelter. I can't think of a better way for George to give back than by helping other animals from the shelter in which he is an alum!”
All of us here at Pope Memorial are so grateful for the generosity of everyone who gave. We are very fortunate to have such a generous community. We hope to care for many more pets with this gift. Thank you, and Happy Fourth Birthday George!
