Wighton’s ‘Stuff-a-Pup” Fundraiser Helps Animals in Need

With a philanthropic donation of $1,112 to the Woods Humane Society, Wighton’s Inc. is helping this nonprofit organization’s mission toward serving, protecting and sheltering homeless companion animals across San Luis Obispo County.

In early Spring of 2019, Wighton’s Inc. hosted its “Stuff-a-Pup” Fundraiser at the Inspired Home and Gourmet Expo of Paso Robles, and welcomed all attendees to stop by the booth to stuff their own pup. With a $10 donation, all proceeds went toward benefitting the Woods Humane Society, resulting in a grand total of $680 by the end of this two-day event. 

Wighton’s hosted a second “Stuff-a-Pup” Fundraiser at the Inspired Home and Garden Expo of San Luis Obispo in May – raising an additional $432 for Woods Humane Society. 

“We take pride in knowing these fundraising efforts will go toward finding loving homes for countless pets,” said Ric Schorer, General Manager of Wighton’s Heating and Air Conditioning. “The Woods Humane Society is dedicated toward going the extra mile for animals in need, and we’re dedicated to supporting them in accomplishing that!”

The combined fundraising total of $1,112 will go toward funding the Woods Humane Society’s many services, including its spay and neuter services, educational programs for kids, dog training classes, microchipping, and the Caring Companions program.

Woods now cares for more than 3,000 cats and dogs each year at its facilities in San Luis Obispo and Atascadero until they can be united with loving forever families. Whether it be animals from other shelters where they are less likely to be adopted or individuals who are no longer able to care for their pets, Woods is committed to servicing all healthy and treatable pets and finding them a loving home.

Wighton’s Inc. will continue to host the “Stuff-a-Pup” fundraiser at every Inspired Expo in Paso Robles and San Luis Obispo moving forward, and look forward to growing its donation amounts each year through this fun community event.
