Couple Makes Gift to OPHS in Honor of “Titus”
Port Angeles, WA ( January 19, 2015) — The Olympic Peninsula Humane Society has received a gift of annuities totaling approximately $80,000 from an anonymous donor for the shelter’s Dig Deep capital campaign.
The gift was made in honor of the couple’s grand dog, “Titus.” Titus is a Great Pyrenees mix and is a rescue dog adopted by the couple’s daughter. Titus will be appropriately recognized in the new dog kennel building once it is complete.
This gift brings the total funds raised for Dig Deep to $1.13 million. OPHS is still working to raise an additional $300,000 for the project.
The funds will be used to help complete construction of the dog kennel building at the Humane Society’s new site on Old Olympic Highway. Hoch Construction is the general contractor of the project, Lindberg and Smith Architects is the architect and project manager. The goal is for OPHS to move to the new site by the fall of 2015.
