Walk for Animals 2014

The Eden Prairie "Three"

At CSM Corporation, we are dedicated to serving our community through volunteering and donating in our local community. This year, members of the our Residence Inn, TownePlace Suites, and SpringHill Suites in Eden Prairie are getting together with friends and family to support the Animal Humane Society.

The Animal Humane Society helps over 30,000 animals every year. With an open admission policy that ensures no animal is turned away, this is no small undertaking. As a non-profit organization that receives no federal or state funding, they rely entirely on private donations, adoption fees, and merchandise sales to sustain the ever-increasing costs to care for these many animals. Some of the services the Animal Humane Society provide are:

  • Accepting homeless animals or pet's abandoned/surrendered by their owners
  • Adopting pets into loving homes
  • Investigating cruelty and neglect
  • Providing educational programs for children
  • Behaviorial training to help animals find new homes
  • Helping owners say goodbye with euthanasia, cremation, burials, and grief counseling
  • Wildlife rehabilitation and release 
Last year, it cost about $12,768,192 for all of the services Animal Humane Society was able to provide the community and the animals in their care. The annual Walk for Animals event is one of their biggest fundraisers of the year and they rely on our support to continue. We know that times are tough for many right now, but these hardships also impact the animals in our community. Think how much your life has been enriched by your pets. Then take a moment to think how many animals aren't as fortunate. EVERY donation - no matter how big or small - makes a difference. For example:
  • Our goal of $500 would pay for about six shy or fearful dogs to go through the Animal Humane Society's Wallflower program, which will help prepare them for finding their new homes.
  • Every $25 in donations will pay to care for a single animal for one day - food, shelter, water, and toys.
  • Every $50 will provide full vaccinations for two cats.
Will you help us? Please consider giving what you can - either through a donation or by joining our team and helping us raise money for this important cause. 

We sincerely thank you for your generous support.
