2013 has started out to be a thrilling year for us at the Lynchburg Humane Society.  Our capital campaign is going strong with a $1 Million matching pledge putting us at 3.58.  But tonight is about raising money for our day to day operations and annual fund.  With our save rate in the 90’s this year we need to continue to provide the care and treatment that these animals deserve.    Tonight you can make a difference in the lives of the animals at the Lynchburg Humane society; they rely on us for everything and give us all so much in return.  Here is a fun video to get us in the spirit of tonight.  Thanks each of you for all your support
