Thanks to our incredible sponsors, donors, and guests, we were able to raise record breaking funds for this event!
With the addition of $52,399 raised on Saturday night alone, you helped us raise over $86,000!
We could not accomplish this important work without the compassion and dedication of each and every one of our amazing supporters.
Fund an Item
If only they could live forever. If the kindest souls were rewarded with the longest lives, pets would outlive us all. Unfortunately, they don’t, and no matter how long it is, it won’t be long enough. When our pets do leave us for the rainbow bridge, we’re often left with ashes of what was once our most favored companion. At the Monroe County Humane Association, we want to honor and treasure the memories of all of those pets in a forever marked Rainbow Bridge Garden. A space so unique to our community that it doesn’t currently exist; a space that will forever honor your pet as their final resting place.
In 2020, MCHA expanded into the Animal Care Campus on the far west side of Bloomington. Our six acre property includes over a mile of public walking wooded trails. Tucked into these trails is phase one of a permanent garden to serve as a final resting for pet cremains.
With your help, we will establish this as a designated Rainbow Bridge Garden, open to the community for scattering ashes, remembering pets lost, and adding memorials to the pets that have touched our lives. The Rainbow Bridge Garden is where the honor and memory of pets live on forever.
The Rainbow Bridge Garden is just one piece of how the Animal Care Campus meets the needs of animals. As part of the new construction and development of our property, MCHA is dedicated to how our space meets the needs of animal care. On our back acre of grass, as part of the new construction and development process, we have to address flooding and water flow patterns to ensure that our green space can meet the needs of animals, staff and our community.
The funds raised towards Phase Two from tonight’s Fund an Item will directly support the development of the grounds, property and the construction towards a Rainbow Bridge Garden. Any funds that are raised above and beyond our goal will be used to directly support the programs and services of the Monroe County Humane Association.
