The Prairie’s Edge Humane Society Annual Dinner and “Auction for the Animals” was held on Saturday, March 23rd at the Northfield Eagles Club and what a great evening it was for the animals! So many supporters of Prairie’s Edge Humane Society came out and helped raise a large amount of funds for the animals who are cared for at PEHS. Thank you to Invisible Fencing for sponsoring the wonderful Lasagna dinner which was served and to Econo Foods for donating items for the dinner as well.
Our special needs animals, those who came to the shelter sick, injured or abused, and were cared for at the PEHS shelter were highlighted in a special video presentation as well as the PEHS alumni produced by Julie Fox of Fox Video Productions! Thank you to Julie for the wonderful job done on the video, it was a very emotional and uplifting video. If you would like to purchase a copy of the video for $10 please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Our alumni photos were also featured on the placemats used for the dinner as well. We have produced these for the past three years from submitted photos of alumni and they are a big hit each year. Thank you to staff member Merilyn for producing these once again this year.
Thank you to all of the businesses and individuals who value the work done at PEHS and donated over 175 items to the silent auction and to our wonderful supporters who kept the bidding going! Our shelter director, Kathy Jasnoch, welcomed the crowd with some inspirational messeges and gave an update on the shelter. Unfortunately our speaker, Kendall Iverson a PEHS volunteer, adopter and recent heart transplant recipient, was hospitalized and unable to attend the event in person, but sent a personal messege, read by shelter business operations manager, Sandy Vesledahl, and allowed us to share his story with everyone even though he was unable to attend. For those of you who have inquired about Kendall since that evening, he has been released from the hospital and is now recuperating at his home in Dickinson, ND with his PEHS adopted dog Cooper by his side! All of us from Prairie’s Edge wish Kendall the best in the future with his recovery and thank him for his continued support of PEHS.
Thank you to the vendors who sold items in our “Buy it Now” section and donated proceeds to PEHS. These are specialty items which can be purchased immediately instead of on the auction and it is always a hit!
We were overwhelmed by the outpouring of support shown to PEHS by everyone on Saturday evening. Thank you to the following businesses and individuals who sponsored tables at the event, Cannon Valley Veterinary Clinic, Premier Bank Northfield, Invisible Fence, Menasha Corporation, the Schwen family, the Calcutt family, the Kuchinka family, the Schumann family, the Vesledahl family, the Sunderlin family, the Moldenhauer family and the Stark family.
Thank you also to the Northfield Eagle’s Club for their support of this event as well as the many other events we hold at their facility. They are always very accomodating in their help for our events and their donations for our events. A special thank you to Ramona of the Eagle’s club for preparing our meal for the evening! We would also like to give a very special thank you to the numerous wonderful PEHS volunteers, who helped with the evenings events, including all of our staff members who volunteered their time to help at the event, and also to the “committee” who organized the event. We are so grateful to all of you!

Cierra Swenson and Jonie Erickson of Northfield are working on their Girl Scout Silver Award. In September and November they hosted Brownie troops from Northfield and helped those scouts earn their pet care badges. They also had various animal-related speakers. Kathy Jasnoch from Prairie’s Edge Humane Society and her dog Jasper talked to the scouts about pet grooming and health. The scouts also made blankets and toys for the shelter animals, and collected donations of food, supplies, and monetary donations for the shelter animals. Congratulations to the scouts and thank you for your hard work on behalf of not only the PEHS animals, but also promoting animal health and responsible pet ownership in the community.
