Fringe is proud to announce that it will donate a portion of all sales to the Washington County Humane Society, effective now through December 31st, 2016!
The Washington County Humane Society’s (WCHS) mission is to protect animals from suffering and cruelty, to provide care for animals afflicted by neglect and abandonment, and to enhance the lives of animals and people through education, adoption and compassion. Since WCHS does not euthanize for space nor does it receive government funding or any funding from state or national humane organizations, donations are a necessity to the shelter.
“The Washington County Humane Society is a small, non-profit organization and it’s facing many challenges due to the rising medical costs to the animals. When we became aware of the shelter’s needs, we wanted to do all we could to help” said Fringe’s co-owner Jessica Forston.
Did you know that each week the WCHS goes through approximately 1,000 lbs. of clay litter, 200 lbs. of dog food, and 200 lbs. of cat food, along with many other supplies? That’s approximately 52,000 lbs. of litter and approximately 20,800 lbs. of dog and cat food a year!

Some donors like to bring in specific items on the wish list while others may choose to send in a monetary donation to use toward operations such as medical needs, vaccines, microchips, food and litter. Please know that any monetary donation, no matter its size, is also greatly appreciated and will be put to immediate use. The demands of the shelter are immense, and your dollars will be invaluable in meeting the needs of our animals!
