Donna Hosfeld visits with DC, a corgi residing at Animals In Distress

Donna Hosfeld visits with DC, a corgi residing at Animals In Distress

The sweet picture here is of DC, a 14 year old Corgi, being adored by Donna Hosfeld. DC’s owner is a veteran; he lost his job, then his home, and had nowhere to live where he could keep his dog. So he tearfully had to give up his beloved pet. We were the only ones to help, since most rescues and shelters considered a 14 year old dog unadoptable. Donna visited our shelter and fell in love with DC.

Some of you may know Donna, owner of Hosfeld Insurance. She has been active in the community on behalf of many charitable causes, including Animals In Distress. She recently received a major honor from Erie Insurance for her community service. In addition to the award, Donna was presented with a $2500 check from Erie for a charity of her choice, and Animals In Distress was her choice.

The very best thing about Donna and so many of our supporters and volunteers is that she does what she does because she cares: her work is done from the heart, not done for praise and public recognition. Helping is, in itself, enough reason. However, it is still nice to see people like Donna getting a public acknowledgement of their kindness and generosity: they truly deserve that recognition.
