Halifax Humane Society received $800,000 contribution from Lowell and Nancy Lohman of Ormond Beach towards Halifax Humane Society’s Reimagining the Future for our Community’s Animals capital campaign Dec. 8 during the seventh-annual Fur Ball gala.
“We are so pleased and grateful that we can be a part of this much-needed capital campaign project," the Lohman family said in a statement. "One that is well overdue! For both, our mission is to help our community’s animals as well as the many children, families and older adults who live alone. We cherish the role pets play in our lives and the part they play within humanity as an anchor of love; a deep love that touches each of our lives.”
The capital campaign project has been spearheaded by Miguel Abi-hassan, HHS CEO, Michael Ugarte, HHS CFDO, Nancy Lohman, campaign chair, and numerous community leaders.To date, $2,638,535 has been raised of the $2.6 million dollar goal required to break ground and begin renovating the Halifax Humane Society’s 50-year-old facility in Daytona Beach.
The total campaign goal is $3.6 million dollars. Halifax Humane Society is asking for the support of the community to raise the remaining $1 million dollars.
The project will feature three components: a newly redesigned Adoption and Pet Center, a new Grooming Boarding center, and a new Travel Center and Rest/Community Recreation Park. The results of the project will be better-matched adoptions, a more positive and educational visitor experience for the community, new sustainable lines of earned income to support programs and an enhanced reputation for Daytona Beach as a pet-friendly community.
