Humane Society of North Iowa receives generous donation
(ABC 6 News) – The Humane Society of North Iowa received a sizeable donation thanks to a national chiropractic effort called the “Give Back Movement”.
Through the charitable giving program, patients that were new to Haas Chiropractic in 2021 received a full exam and learned about the benefits of chiropractic care for a reduced fee, with the fee then being donated to the Humane Society of North Iowa.
“Haas Chiropractic is proud to be a part of the Give Back Movement program,” said Dr. David Haas. “And since every employee at our clinic, including myself, has pets and loves animals, it was an obvious choice to direct our donation to the Humane Society of North Iowa.”
According to Humane Society of North Iowa Executive Director Sybil Soukup, the donation will be put towards their Miracle Fund. The fund was named for a puppy found huddled up to her mother in a cornfield on a cold January day in 2005. Both had been shot and left for dead, but the puppy was still alive. The puppy was brought to the Humane Society of North Iowa and after emergency surgery and extensive care, survived the ordeal. The pup, later named Miracle, went on to live a long healthy life. The Miracle Fund was set up in her name to help other animals that come into the shelter with urgent or life-threatening injuries that require immediate veterinary care.
“We are beyond grateful to Haas Chiropractic for this incredible donation,” stated Soukup. “It will allow us to save the lives of animals that are suffering ailments or injuries that are treatable with medical care. This donation will allow many animals to live long healthy lives,” concluded Soukup.
