The 29th Annual Regina Humane Society Telethon, presented by Access Communications Co-operative, which aired live February 19 from 6 to 10 p.m. on Access7 was an outstanding success. This year’s Telethon raised over $59,000, setting a new record for donations made during the live broadcast! We are amazed and grateful for how generous people are with their time and their support when it comes to the animals we care for.
Wade Peterson, Manager of Community Production at Access7, said the while Access airs a number of similar events each year, the response to the RHS Telethon always blows him away, adding that having a good cause makes all the difference.
The evening was full of heart-warming success stories from the past year made possible with your support, along with visits from adopted shelter animals, behind the scenes looks at the Shelter, pet tips, entertainment and special guests including four-legged friends currently seeking their happily ever after.
We would like to thank everyone who helped to make the night a success:
