The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce announced its 46th annual Community Service Awards last Friday.
Valley Humane Society received an award for Non-Profit or Public Service Organization — for non-profit organizations that have contributed to Pleasanton through philanthropic efforts.
The Chamber stated that:
“Valley Humane Society has transformed itself from a purely animal rescue organization to one that emphasizes the animal human bond. Valley Humane Society has partnered with Open Heart Kitchen, Tri-Valley Haven, Hope Hospice (caring for the animals of patients), Critter Camp, (pet education for kids) and many more.”
This is a GREAT acknowledgment of Valley Humane’s value to the people and animals they serve and is a testimony to the work they’ve done to customize their programs and services to fit the needs of their local community.
Gold star to the Valley Humane Society, to their staff and volunteers and board of directors. Nice job! /Gary
