Local Humane Society In Need Of Hay Bales

1388426971JASPER (NNDC) – The Dubois County Humane Society is in need of hay bales and is asking the public for its help.

April Schepers is a member of the humane society’s Education and Rescue Unit. She says the bales are used during the winter months for bedding for animals throughout the community and in kennels to protect them from the harsh rain and snow.

Schepers says last winter the humane society went through nearly 80 bales within a few short weeks due mainly to the harsh winter and a particular cold snap in early January.

Schepers says they are trying to get word out to the community that we are accepting new, as well as in tact, and in good condition bales left over from fall decorations.

She says, “We are also collecting donations to be put directly towards the purchase of straw.”

To make your donations of hay bales, Please contact the Dubois County Humane Society in Jasper at (812) 482-7387.
