Raising thousands of dollars with each passing hour, it was another great success for Country 100's Paws for Pledges Radiothon on Friday.
Setting a goal of $100,000, residents across Moose Jaw and businesses in the Friendly City, with some chipping in from Regina, managed to raise $108,350.
Including this year's total, the Paws for Pledges Radiothon has managed to raise over a half a million dollars for the Moose Jaw Humane Society, that's a total of $541,021 raised since 2013.
With the objective of raising money, awareness, and getting as many animals as they could be adopted, people stopped throughout the day to support the local shelter.
Even if you couldn't help, the Humane Society will always accept donations and is always looking for foster parents to take some animals into their homes for a little bit.
"Fostering's a good option if you don't want to make the full commitment," said dedicated foster parent Vicki Marshall. "Even if you have a little bit of room in your house and in your heart to help them out it gets them out of the cages and it's really great. [The Humane Society] people are wonderful."
Be careful though, some people end up being a foster fail and adopt the animals they were only supposed to be watching for a short time.
People donated in some creative ways throughout the day, with one business challenging another to match or beat their donation to the radiothon.
One special donation came from seven-year-old Isaac Kohorst, he brought in a $25 worth of animal treats and a card to the Human Society. In the card, he thanked the workers there, saying "Thank you for protecting dogs and puppies, you do so good at your job. Feel proud, give yourself a pat on the back. You do an awesome job."
Hundreds of dollars poured in from businesses with the largest, a $2000 donation, coming in from the Western Automotive Group.
The Humane Society also had their "Adoption by Donation Day," where adult animals could be given a forever home with any amount. Mickey, Bella, Sassy, Smokey, Keanu, Jimbo, Tommy, Deacon, Dennis, and Scout all found loving owners. That's five cats and five dogs.
"It is not just about raising money today, it's about finding forever homes for our family of pets as well," Dana Haukaas with the MJHS said.
