Stephanie Dolan and her family, who live in Connecticut, adopted Nala from the Natchitoches Humane Society in December. Soon after Stephanie read that the NHS had 52 dogs in its care and its plea for food donations. She recently organized a fundraiser at a country club in Connecticut, 1,539 miles away from Natchitoches, to benefit the NHS.
“We were amazed and feel so honored how caring people so far away would want to help our animals,” said NHS Representative Juanita Murphy. “It made me cry when she wrote and told me what they were planning.”
