Tomorrow: HSPPR Raises Money for Homeless Animals on National Giving Day

Meet Brass — a growing pup

November 27, 2023 Colorado Springs, COHumane Society of the Pikes Peak Region (HSPPR) is raising funds for the care of neglected, homeless, and injured animals on GivingTuesday, a national day of giving. 

Brass was only a week old when he was found lying next to a tree at a construction site with his eyes and ears still closed. With Brass’ mother nowhere to be seen, the good Samaritans who found Brass called Animal Law Enforcement to bring him to safety and begin his journey as a growing puppy. With donations from our community on GivingTuesday, Brass is just one example of animals being helped daily at HSPPR. 

MetLife Pet Insurance, a generous grant supporter of HSPPR, will double every donation made on GivingTuesday up to $30,000. 

GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. GivingTuesday is now an independent nonprofit and a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity. 

Brass will be available for media visits on Tuesday, November 28 between 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. and Cody Costra will be available for interviews.
