LOGAN — Lola is one of the sheltered animals at the Cache Humane Society (CHS) and during KVNU’s For the People program on Tuesday, Lola provided paw prints which are part of a big current fundraiser for the shelter.

Stacey Frisk, executive director for CHS, returned to the program and told us about Lola, who is available for adoption.

“Lola is about two years old,” Frisk said. “She’s a shepherd mix, 65 pounds of snuggles and fluff”

From now until May 12th, special Mother’s Day cards are available with colored ink paw prints made by shelter dogs like Lola, who produced prints for a card while on the show.

“She’s here to show you the process in action,” she added. “We have these big colorful pet-safe ink pads she’ll dip her paws in. And then those will go onto some canvass to turn into some nice Mother’s Day-themed art work.

“For anyone who goes to our website there’s a simple form to fill out with a personalized message and your Mom’s mailing address. She will get a custom piece of art made by a shelter pet this year.”

Cache Humane Society is a non-profit No-Kill shelter that depends on community support, support through grants and more to stay in operation. Frisk was asked what makes the organization unique.

“I think Cache Humane and our culture is really an extension of what we have here in Cache Valley. Which is a wonderful community with an agricultural heritage, a love of animals, love of the outdoors, a desire to support each other here in our community. And we’re just grateful to be a part of that culture and to reflect that culture at our organization.”

CHS has a new building with expanded space. They have been helping animals in Cache Valley for almost 50 years. They were established in 1976 by local animal lovers who fostered animals in their own homes.
