CHARLOTTETOWN — The P.E.I. Humane Society’s No Place Like Home campaign has not reached its fundraising target.  

The campaign has been, and continues to be the largest source of fundraising for the P.E.I. Humane Society. Unfortunately, the campaign goal of $65,000 has fallen short by $10,000 this year.

“Despite the shortfall, we would be amiss if we did not send out a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who did contribute to our No Place Like Home campaign this year,” said the society’s executive director Kelly Mullaly. “It is wonderful to see the continued outpouring of support from Islanders for the work we do here at the shelter. We are fortunate to have our repeat donors, some dating as far back as 1997.  

“But what is very promising is the number of new individuals making donations to the campaign this year.”

This year marks the society’s 40th year in operation on P.E.I.

“So it is disappointing that we were unable to reach our goal this year. The money raised from our annual campaign helps support the programs and services offered by the shelter all year long,” said Leanne Cail, its marketing and development manager. “Expenses continue to rise, but unfortunately the number of animals who pass through our doors each year is not decreasing.”

Fundraising efforts at the P.E.I. Humane Society continue with events such as the second annual National Cupcake Day, which takes place Feb. 24

“If you like to bake cupcakes, or maybe you just like to eat them, then this is the event for you,” said Cail.

Donations can still be made to the No Place Like home campaign by calling 892-1190; online at www.peihumanesociety.com; or mailed to P.E.I. Humane Society, Box 20022, Charlottetown, P.E.I., C1A 9E3
