Regional Rescue Match
Campaign Co-Chairs Sue and John Diekman are generously offering to match donations of any amount to support Humane Society Silicon Valley’s (HSSV) Regional Rescue program up to $500,000. Dr. and Mrs. Diekman are pleased to present this match in honor of their adopted dog, Jeremy, who was brought to HSSV through this critical lifesaving program.
Through our Regional Rescue program, we transfer animals in from other community shelters to our Animal Community Center, alleviating the strain on the community shelters’ resources. This program allows us to take animals with more specialized needs that government-operated shelters cannot assist. Regional Rescue drives the largest percentage of our annual animal intake, and it continues to grow. In fact, from fiscal year 2014 to fiscal year 2015, intake of Regional Rescue Animals grew by a remarkable 70%.
Support for this program will ensure that HSSV is able to remain a safety net for homeless animals, and to further improve the lifesaving capabilities of all shelters in the community.
