PEHS Will Close at 4 PM on Thursday, November 13th

137x144_DonateNow[1]So that our staff and volunteers can help at two large events in conjunction with Give to the Max Day, the Prairie’s Edge Humane Society shelter facility will be closing at 4 pm on Thursday, November 13th.

Please join us at our “Spay-ghetti” Dinner from 5-7 pm at the Northfield Eagles Club  and/or at Northfield Gives at the Grand “A Celebration of Giving” from 5-9 pm at the Grand Entertainment Center in Northfield where there will be hor-d-houvres, a cash bar and entertainment by the 8th Street Duo, featuring Chad Johnson and Russell Franek.  Both events will be held on Thursday, November 13th along with Give to the Max Day.

There will be laptops available at both events to process your secure, on line, tax deductible donation to Prairie’s Edge Humane Society.  We have secured a $5000 matching funds grant and every donation enters PEHS into a drawing to win a Golden Ticket worth $2000 each hour of the 24 hours of Give to the Max Day and a final $20,000 Golden Ticket.

Don’t miss out on the fun, good food and excitement! (or click on the “Donate Now” tab above and pre-schedule your donation for Give to the Max Day)


Give to the Max Day, Thursday, November 13th

137x144_DonateNow[1]On Give to the Max Day, Thursday, November 13th we hope you will Give to the Max for the animals at Prairie’s Edge Humane Society.  We have secured $5000 in matching grant funds.  Once we raise $5000 we will receive another $5000!  Each donation given for Give to the Max Day helps us to meet our goal.  Each donation also enters us into a chance to win a $1000 Golden Ticket which will be drawn each hour of the 24 hours of Give to the Max Day as well as a $10,000 final drawing.  We won a $1000 Golden Ticket last year, so it does happen, but only with the help of everyone!  You can process your secure on line donation by clicking on the “Donate Now”.  If you are not going to be available on November 13th you can pre-schedule your donation right now!  Just click on the “Donate Now” and follow the “scheduled donation” instructions!  Please Give to the Max for the homeless animals at Prairie’s Edge Humane Society!  Thank you!

Prairie’s Edge Receives AED Unit


Prairie’s Edge Humane Society was selected by the Defeat of Jesse James Days Committee of Northfield to be the recipient of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) which will be on loan to the PEHS shelter for use at our facility and our various community events throughout the year.  The unit will be returned to the DJJD Committee each September during the Defeat of Jesse James Days celebration and then returned again to the PEHS shelter to be housed throughout the rest of the year.  PEHS staff members have completed an American Heart Association CPR AED Training course.  Prairie’s Edge Humane Society was one of four local non-profits to receive an AED from the Defeat of Jesse James Days Committee.  Thank you to the Defeat of Jesse James Days Committee for this opportunity.  We hope we will never have to use the device but are grateful to have the unit in the event that we would ever be in need of it for anyone attending our events.  Pictured with the AED unit and storage cabinet at the PEHS shelter facility are Sandy Vesledahl, PEHS staff member and T.J. Heinricy, Defeat of Jesse James Days Board Member.  Area non-profits working together!
