Colorado Springs Couple Helps the Humane Society in Many Ways
Pam and Daniel McBride's support of the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region can only be described as exemplary. The McBride's donate monthly, have provided for the Humane Society's future through Pam's life insurance policy and have housed about 250 foster cats over the years.
"Pam and Daniel set the bar for supporters of the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region," says Randy Harrelson, director of development for the Humane Society. "Their very generous financial contributions, along with their lifesaving work as foster parents, reveal a couple whose selflessness and compassion knows no bounds."
Their dedication to the Humane Society stems from being lifelong cat lovers. In addition to their own beloved felines, the McBride's are seemingly always caring for a number of foster cats (oftentimes mother cats and their young litters).
Pam, a U.S. Air Force colonel and geriatric nurse practitioner, says she doesn't think there is a better organization than the Humane Society. "The Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region just embodies benevolence to me," she says. "Benevolence is just doing good for others. It's an act of love. You get something out of it and you give something back."
Cats aren't the only animals that Pam and Dan, a management consultant, love. The Colorado Springs couple also has four horses and three dogs.
Fundraising has been especially difficult for the Humane Society this year, Pam says, and the folks there were surprised when she said they wanted to increase their automatic monthly donation. Pam says she never plans to decrease their gift. "You don't have to think about it, and you know that every month you're doing good," she says. The planned gift from Pam's life insurance policy is just another way the McBride's plan to provide for the Humane Society and help make sure that every animal is loved.
