Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) August 25, 2014
Well-known Valley philanthropists Bob and Renee Parsons supported the Arizona Humane Society’s 18th Annual Pet Telethon with a major gift. The couple donated $25,000 through The Bob & Renee Parsons Foundation on behalf of each of their “furkids” – Max, Chief, Ninety-nine, and Eighty-eight – for a total donation of $100,000.
“Our animals bring so much joy to our family,” said philanthropist Renee Parsons. “Like the Arizona Humane Society, Bob and I believe that every animal deserves a good life. By matching the funds raised during the Arizona Humane Society's Pet Telethon we had the opportunity double the impact of the gifts pledged and ultimately enhance the quality of life for homeless Arizona animals.”
The telethon, held on Saturday, August 23, 2014, was the culmination of the Summer to Save Lives, an eight-week community engagement campaign in partnership with 3TV. The Arizona Humane Society (AHS) rescues, heals, adopts and advocates for homeless, sick, injured and abused animals. Through collaborative partnerships, affordable community services, emergency rescue and a medical trauma center, AHS is committed to providing second chances and saving the lives of more animals.
