Patty Hoyer’s 2022 Dog Jog Fundraiser for CHA

This year I am dedicating my run to Abbey a beautiful Border Collie (Yes DNA revealed she is 100% Border Collie) I rescued from a rural shelter in Kentucky in 2014. She was known as #9 female. Abbey was adopted by a friend of mine and she is living a wonderful, spoiled life in Columbus, Ohio. Although Abbey didn’t go through CHA Animal Shelter, CHA takes in many dogs like Abbey from rural shelters, providing vet care and temporary housing until they are adopted through CHA’s adoption process.

Frequently, the dogs CHA pulls from the rural shelters need additional veterinary care, beyond what our adoption fee covers. I continue to be committed to raising the money needed to support the increase in the number of dogs and cats the shelter can accept from the rural shelters.

Most of the rural shelters that CHA has partnered with have no operating budget, no formalized adoption programs, limited food, and a very limited support staff in place to care for these animals. The only hope these animals have is to be rescued by another organization such as CHA. Unfortunately, without additional funds CHA cannot continue to rescue animals from the rural shelters.
Today I am asking for your help in making me the number one fundraiser for the tenth year in a row, which will help CHA Animal shelter continue to help homeless dogs from rural shelters. No donation is too small!

Thank you for your support!
