It’s always great to start the week with a check presentation. And thanks to Raising Cane’s DFW-area Limited-Edition National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation Plush Puppy sales, they were able to hand over a $28,885.45 check to Operation Kindness CEO Ed Jamison and his team of humans and critters.
This support of an animal rescue group aligns with the very founding of Raising Cane’s. So the story goes, “When Raising Cane’s Founder Todd Graves was trying to come up with the name for his Restaurant in 1996, he originally planned to call it ‘Sockeye’s’ after the salmon he fished in Alaska. Luckily, a friend suggested he name it after his yellow Labrador Retriever, Raising Cane, who was always with Todd at the construction site.”
Despite Cane’s passing away in 1998, he has had Cane II and Cane III following in his paw steps.
Thanks to these funds, lifesaving veterinary care, food, shelter and medicine will help pooches and felines find healthy, loving homes.
And speaking of finding homes, this past Saturday Operation Kindness had a grand opening of its new adoption center at the North Dallas PetSmart complete with Dallas City Councilmember Carla Mendelsohn joining Ed for the ribbon-cutting.
