On Saturday, May 20th the office at Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper Realtors in New Braunfels, Texas teamed up with their local New Braunfels Humane Society for their Adopt-a-Dog day. “ This is the second time we have done this with their organization, and it’s a wonderful feeling to help the local dogs that are often abandoned or surrendered,” says Julie Gezella, VP for the New Braunfels office.
The event was well promoted, with all the newest in Coldwell Banker “Somebody to Love” promotional materials. Not to mention the fabulous heart-tugging commercial that is now airing!
Raffle tickets for a customized dog house were selling for $5.00 each. “Our friends at Coventry/Wilshire Homes graciously donated this amazing dog house for BOTH years we’ve done this. To have a miniature little house with all the decked out high-end building amenities was pretty awesome!” says Gezella.
There was an auction with dog related items, as well as a donation jar for money and drop off station for food and dog items to help the Humane Society.
Seven dogs were delivered to the New Braunfels parking Lot (the Humane Society had a great week prior, adopting out several dogs already!!), one went home that day, one needed to do paperwork on Monday, and one needed a home visit to the prospective adoptee’s ranch to see how “Sandy” handled the horses he had.
“Main thing is the awareness that often people don’t know about. ADOPT don’t SHOP. I personally have adopted THREE dogs from the New Braunfels Humane Society,” Gezella states. “ Once Coldwell Banker rolled out their 2015-2016 Promotion and challenged us to promote the adoption of 20,000 dogs, I just knew I had to be part of that. “
Over $800 was raised through raffle tickets and auction items, all benefiting New Braunfels Humane Society.
