UPDATE: When we provided the information about the amount of money committed so far in the silent phase of Butte Humane Society's new facility campaign, we said it was approximately $1M. We did not tell you that part of the $12M campaign goal was met when the property in north Chico was donated to the Humane Society. That property is valued at $3M.
To be accurate, we verified Tuesday that with the amount of the property donation, $4.5M has been committed to the campaign so far, which includes $1.6M in cash and pledges and the $3M in donated property near the Sunset Hills Golf Course.
A donation of $35,000 is helping seed the campaign for a new home for the Butte Humane Society. The money came from the North Valley Community Foundation's Mike and Dotty Collett Animal Care Fund.
The Journey Home campaign is being spearheaded by Ken Grossman, owner and founder of the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and his wife, Katie Gonser. They aim to raise $12M for the 10 acre project near Sunset Hills Golf Course in north Chico, which includes a community dog park. So far about a million dollars has been raised in this preliminary silent phase of the campaign.
Now the society works at three different locations which are all outdated, says Executive Director Katrina Woodcox. They are out of space, she said.
If you would like to donate you can contact the Butte Humane Society at 343-7917.
