Tipping Policy Update Part 1

July 11, 2018 | Jennifer Murphy

Back in April, the announcement was made about a new tipping policy. The first round of tips were donated at the first of this month. Did you wonder what non-profit they went to?

Before we talk about where our tip went to, I would like to introduce to you my bestest buddy, Oso. I was super new to Elizabethtown and a friend had told me about the Louisville Humane Society when I was looking to adopt a dog. The day Oso came home with me, he was a tiny black fluff ball with a sassy attitude. One hair cut and a big growth spurt, he grew to be a long blonde dog (still super sassy). The picture below very accurately displays his level of patience for me.

It wasn’t until several years later that I learned about our local animal shelter. Specifically about Friends of the Hardin County Animal Shelter. When I decided to start donating tips quarterly to non-profits, I knew that FOCHAS would be the first on my list. FOHCAS mission is to help provide equipment and materials that are outside of the shelter’s funding. Their reach expanded when they started providing medical funding for the sick and injured pets that are turned in at the shelter. Tips from this quarter were ear marked for this specific fund!

Have you checked out their website yet? If you haven’t, you should. Success stories from the medical fund will for sure warm your heart! Do you have a dog or cat that you’ve rescued? Has the FOHCAS medical fund helped out your pet?
