Humane Society hosts naming contest for animals seized near Wall

By  | 

Naming your pet is one of the most exciting parts of getting a new furry friend. Now you can help pick some for more than a hundred animals at the Humane Society of the Black Hills.

It's all a part of a fundraiser on social media. The Humane Society is giving people a chance to suggest different names for the 150 animals seized by law enforcement near Wall in December.
Organizers say there's been an overwhelming amount of support from the community, but the need for donations is still there.

Kaitlyn Janak with the HSBH says, "We've been trying to keep everybody as updated as possible. Because everyone is so invested in this case, I think giving people a chance to put their stamp on things and actively participate in the whole process is really going to be awesome for them. I think it will help them have a deeper connection with the case itself and with the animals brought in."

To propose a name, you can visit the Humane Society of the Black Hills Facebook page starting Monday, March 13th. You'll find an 'Animal Naming Contest' photo album filled with photos. It costs a minimum of $1 dollar per name.
The Humane Society says they do not have custody of the animals at this time, so the names are to help their staff make the animals feel more at home.
