“Humane Society staff said the $1,068 we raised was the largest cash donation they have received in quite some time.”

Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) December 08, 2011
Anthem College-Phoenix and it online division, Anthem College Online, held a joint fundraiser last month to benefit the Arizona Humane Society that raised over $1,000 and collected 640 items for donation.
“Humane Society staff said the $1,068 we raised was the largest cash donation they have received in quite some time,” says Lisa Buck, Registrar for Anthem College Online. “They were pretty excited by this and the number of items that came in as well.”
Students attending Anthem College-Phoenix and staff from both divisions contributed supplies and funds and many participated in a silent auction for donated gifts that included a helmet autographed by several members of the Arizona Cardinals, gift certificates for massages and facials from other Valley schools, and packages from several area golf courses. Individual staff members also offered gifts to auction as well, including a gift basket of high-end skin care products and original artwork.
The fundraiser also resulted in two new pet adoptions from the Humane Society.
“The Humane Society does so much in the name of all animals,” Buck comments. “They provide rescue, shelter, care, therapy, and prepare legislation to protect animals. We are so grateful to the Anthem College and Anthem College Online communities for helping this deserving organization.”
Anthem College-Phoenix, located at 1515 East Indian School Road in Phoenix, has a special interest in animal welfare and offers an Associate of Science degree in Veterinary Technology. Last year, it opened a new facility to support the program.
Other programs include Computer Networking & Security, Dental Assistant, Medical Assistant, Paralegal, and Pharmacy Technician. Depending on the program, students can study for a diploma and/or associate degree. Students take one course at a time, an approach that many say helps them focus more closely on course material. Courses are held in day and evening sessions to give students more flexibility.
