Van Horn Donates Van to Sheboygan County Humane Society


It's officially spring, and to kick the season off, Van Horn Automotive Group has donated a 2012 Chrysler Town & Country Touring to the Sheboygan County Humane Society.

The Sheboygan County Humane Society is an open admissions shelter (that turns no homeless animals away) located in Sheboygan, WI. For over 50 years, they have been providing care for the lost and mistreated  animals of Sheboygan County. They take care of 2,500 pets a year, so every donation they get helps so much. Leah Helms, Executive Director of the Sheboygan County Humane Society, said that food and care-taking costs add up to about $275/animal. 

"The employee owners at Van Horn hold a special place in their heart for animals. They are the innocent ones. They don't have the power to protect themselves in our society. Van Horn really wants to help those who are innocent victims," says Chuck Van Horn.

Van Horn is very fortunate to be able to donate a van to help with some of the organizations needs for the pets. They often need vans to pick up large donations, to bring animals to vet services, to bring in aluminum cans to get weighed and turned in, and to run errands. It is important to have transportation methods to rescue abused or neglected animals from a poor environment.  The vans also help with transport to adopt-a-pet events and to local assisted living facilities to bring the pets for visits with the patients.

Leah Helms wanted to thank Van Horn saying,“When a community joins together we can do powerful things. Thank you Van Horn for supporting SCHS; together we are making our community a better place to live."
