Walking for a Worthy Cause
May 8, 2023
Opportunities to give back locally with our community partners throughout the year are boundless. This month, Egan Company has supported the Animal Humane Society through its Walk for Animals fundraising event.
According to its website, the Animal Humane Society provides care and services to nearly 100,000 animals every year. There are three local adoption centers in the Twin Cities.
On May 6, 2023, members of the Egan team volunteered with the Animal Humane Society to take part in its Walk for Animals at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. Many employees gave financial support as well, with a company match from Egan resulting in a $2,944 donation.
I’m passionate about giving back to the Animal Humane Society because I’m an avid animal lover and they are an important part of our community. They aren’t only an adoption center; they provide support by offering training classes, camps and low cost veterinary care through a strong community outreach program. AHS is the first place people with animals think of in a crisis and often on a large scale. This could be supporting displaced pets due to natural disasters or providing no-cost services to local law enforcement in cases related to or involving animals. The Animal Humane Society helps make our community a better place and provides a much needed second chance for animals in need.Rachel Welt, Egan Company Corporate Accounting Controller
