Carmel, Ind. (PRWEB) October 31, 2013
Last month’s Barktember event at The Waterpark may have been as fun as a basket of puppies, but it was also a boost to the Humane Society for Hamilton County’s bottom line. The annual event hosted by Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation raised more than $5000 for the county’s animal shelter.
The check was recently to the Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC). Representatives from both Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation and the Humane Society for Hamilton County were on hand as well as some “furry friends.”
“We are just thrilled with this partnership that gives dogs and their owners a chance to enjoy one last day at The Waterpark while donating to our facility,” says Rebecca Stevens, executive director, HSHC. “This level of donation to our shelter is a substantial one that we can really use in light of the increasing number of animals here.”
Dog lovers brought their pets to the Monon Community Center Waterpark on September 7 where they enjoyed live music and water fun throughout the afternoon. Last year’s event raised $1000.
