Dr. Marilu Bintz has gifted Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter $40,000 toward its efforts to build a shelter for the Prairie du Chien area.
“This donation will certainly bring our goal of an animal shelter much closer to reality,” stated Bev Pozega, RABAS volunteer.
Dr. Bintz shared the reason for her generosity toward the organization. “In the 26 years that I have spent practicing here, Prairie du Chien and the surrounding communities were very good to me,” she said. “This is one way I can try to say thank you.”
Dr. Bintz’s donation, coupled with two other anonymous donations totaling $25,000, received in the same week, brings RABAS’ total to over $330,000.
Rivers and Bluffs Animal Shelter will be constructed on two acres of land, donated by Steve and Lynda Welter, at the intersection of East Campion Boulevard and 22nd Street.
The group is beginning its ninth year of fundraising.
