On September 23 Asheville Humane Society launched our new campaign, Thrive! Together. This is our vision for pets and their people.
The Thrive! Together campaign is led by Asheville Humane Society's manifesto: We believe that pets and their people deserve a safe and healthy community in which to live and thrive...together. Thrive! Together focuses on three priorities with three goals each that will be fulfilled in 1,000 days.
Executive Director Tracy Elliott said, "This vision is about pets and their people in the community. It will be achieved in the community, by the community. We will continue to save lives on this amazing animal care campus, but now we endeavor to save the lives of those who never get here and in fact to ensure that animals never arrive here. We will solve problems before they become tragedies and help the animals out in our community to thrive!"
Priestly Ford will be leading the fundraising of the campaign. "This pyramid is our plan to fund Thrive! Together. As you can see, it's a plan that includes today, tomorrow, and forever", said Ford.
Tammy Jones and Ken Ulmer, from Mix 96.5 and WLOS, have also joined the Thrive! Together campaign as Tour Directors. Their job is to make sure it's fun, creative and that the community knows about the journey and what Asheville Humane Society is working to accomplish.
Citizens are invited to join Thrive! Together and become involved through volunteering, fostering or donating to the campaign.
