Siouxland Humane Society has received an $1800 donation through Midwest Family Lending’s MFLCares program. The funds will be used in support the nonprofit’s mission to “provide services and programs that promote the humane treatment of animals in the Siouxland area.”
“We are honored to have been chosen as MFLCares’ December charity.” says Jerry Dominicak, executive director of the Siouxland Humane Society. “Support from organizations like Midwest Family Lending helps not only the homeless pets here at the shelter but also supports our Siouxland community outreach programs like our pet retention program, which helps keep pets with their families. We can assist those in need with pet food, supplies, vet and spay/neuter services, which may help them keep their family member with them.”
Through MFLCares, Midwest Family Lending employees nominate and select one cause a month that is dear to their hearts to receive a donation.
“We got our schnauzer, Katie, at the Siouxland Humane Society 10 years ago,” says Kim Hinrichsen, licensed mortgage loan originator with Midwest Family Lending. “She has been such a blessing to our family, and now we’ve adopted Finn. He is a very loving dog with lots of love and kisses to give. The Siouxland Humane Society offers so many services to homeless animals that need shelter and so many other resources.”
