You may have read about the fabulous matching gift program that Mr. Lyman Pope is funding as a way to help the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County reach its goal of building a new building to better care for the ever increasing number of homeless animals that come our way.

But did you know that the program ends Dec. 31, 2013?

To make it easier to donate to this capital campaign, we have set up several options:

– On our website with an online donation:
– A pledge form, which you can print from our website and mail in
– Contact Executive Director Tracy Sala for more information or for a pledge form at 594-4897 or via e-mail at

AND your gift can be in the form of a credit card payment, a check, or a pledge.

Please note:

– All gifts and pledges must be made by December 31, 2013 and will be matched on a first-come, first-served basis until the $100,000 level is reached.
– Multi-year pledges are welcome (pledges over time require a signed pledge form).
– There is no upper limit on the size of a single gift.

So please keep us in mind for your holiday gift giving and year-end tax planning. You’ll be pleasing your gift recipients and your bank account as well as the 1500 animals we are on target to serve this year alone!
