Prairie’s Edge Humane Society will host our Annual Dinner and “Auction for the Animals” on Saturday, April 12th at the Northfield Ballroom. We are planning a fun filled evening with a wonderful buffet dinner, speakers and hundreds of wonderful items on the silent auction as well as a “buy it now, cash and carry” section. All proceeds will benefit the animals at Prairie’s Edge Humane Society. Come out and help raise funds for the homeless animals we care for by purchasing a dinner ticket and bidding on the auction items. This year’s theme focuses on the healing and therapeutic power of animals. You can purchase tickets on line by clicking here.
Our first speaker, Kendall Iverson will share his personal story of receiving a heart transplant on December 24, 2012 and adopting his dog Cooper shortly thereafter from the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society. Kendall and Cooper have had a difficult journey during 2013 due to illness and complications with his transplant resulting in the need for a 2nd open heart surgery this past year. Kendall will share what has transpired with his health over the past year and how Cooper was his support, his therapy and his best friend through it all while a patient at Abbott Northwestern Hospital and during his recovery.
Our second speaker, Chaplain Ken Burg, is a full-time chaplain at Abbott Northwestern Hospital, working especially with the Advanced Heart Failure Team, the same team which has treated Kendall Iverson. He has been a pastor serving in various full-time capacities since 1980. He has witnessed first-hand the power of therapy and service animals in the treatment and care of many patients at Abbott.
There will be a video presentation of special needs animals helped this year as well as alumni from the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society during the program. If you have not sent a photo of your adopted pet from Prairie’s Edge Humane Society please do so now to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Nationwide, an estimated 6-8 million homeless kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs enter animal shelters every year. Spay/neuter is a permanent, 100-percent effective method of birth control for cats, dogs, and rabbits. When we spay or neuter pets, feral cats, and other street animals, we ensure that those animals and their offspring will not add to the millions of already suffering animals by continuing to reproduce. The message of World Spay Day is that by spaying or neutering your pet, by supporting spay/neuter efforts in the United States and abroad, and by informing others of the importance of spay/neuter, you become an important part of the solution! World Spay Day occurs annually on the last Tuesday in February. The next World Spay Day will occur on Tuesday, February 25, 2014. World Spay Day events are held throughout February, which is Spay/Neuter Awareness Month. World Spay Day is truly a global effort: Hundreds of animal welfare organizations, veterinary clinics and hospitals, schools, businesses, and individuals in the United States and around the world organize World Spay Day events to educate people in their communities about the life-saving importance of spay/neuter, to provide spay/neuter services at special prices for particular populations, and to raise critical spay/neuter funds.
In observance of World Spay Day, Prairie’s Edge Humane Society will host a low-cost spay/neuter clinic for outdoor/barn/community cats on Tuesday, February 25th. Surgeries will be done at the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society shelter in Faribault. $50 will cover the surgery plus a rabies vaccination. Please contact the PEHS shelter at 507-334-7117 for details and to register.
