Valley Humane Society to hold 'Giving' campaign today

Organization relies on contributions for its funding

As part of the nationwide Giving Tuesday effort to focus attention on contributions to charities in the wake of commercial spending on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Pleasanton's Valley Humane Society is hoping to raise vital funds for local dogs and cats on Tuesday.

VHS said the money would help animals like Ralphie, a spirited kitten who's learning to get along again after a leg amputation, and Myles, an affectionate Retriever puppy who was found as a stray with a severe but treatable skin condition.

Through the nonprofit, they have high-quality care and a chance to find loving forever homes. VHS relies on contributions from residents, small businesses and local companies for its funding, since it receives none from national humane groups, taxes, or state and federal sources. Visit
