(Bowling Green) – The Wood County Humane Society (WCHS) worked the Pisanello’s Pizza Booth at the Black Swamp Arts Festival (BSAF) which ran from Friday, September 8th to Sunday, September 10th. All of the proceeds benefited The WCHS. The pizza booth brought in approximately $2,600.00 for the organization.
President of The Wood County Humane Society, Heath Diehl, stated, “We at The Wood County Humane Society are very fortunate to have a community partner like Pisanello’s that whole-heartedly supports our mission by partnering with us on such a successful fundraising event each year. It is through partnerships like this that we are able to provide the best possible treatment and quality of life for all animals in Wood County. Working a shift or two in the Pisanello’s booth at the Black Swamp Arts Festival is one of the highlights of my year. Not only do I get to help raise money for a cause that I care deeply about, but also I get to do so while listening to fantastic music and being surrounded by the delicious smells of Pisanello’s pizza.”
The BSAF has become a staple fundraising event for the WCHS. Bethany DeLuca, Fundraising Committee Chair, wanted to emphasize, “A huge thank you goes out to our volunteers who make this event successful year after year! Their help and the fabulous crew at Pisanello’s allow the WCHS to raise crucial funds and provide the festival goers with great pizza!We also want to thank Tom and The Bowling Green Country Club for providing our transportation for the weekend.”
The WCHS, located in Bowling Green, Ohio, is a private, non-profit managed admission shelter providing care for homeless and abused pets and investigating cruelty complaints in Wood County. The organization receives no funding from government organizations, The United Way, or national humane organizations, instead relying on earned revenue and the generosity of individual donors and businesses to fund our programs such as Safe Haven and food assistance programs, spay/neuter transport, and educational presentations. The WCHS provides care for hundreds of animals each year—from dogs and cats, to horses, goats, and pocket pets. All animals admitted into our adoption program are housed and cared for as long as it takes to find their fur-ever home. For more information on adopting and/or volunteering, see:
