The donor, Garth Jordan, made arrangements through the Osage Cooperative Elevator to purchase fifty 40-pound bags of Red Flannel brand dog food and have it delivered to the Humane Society of North Iowa in Mason City. He made the donation to honor the memory of his beloved dog, Muffin, an Airedale who was his faithful companion for many years.
“I’ve always been a supporter of the Humane Society of North Iowa,” stated Mr. Jordan, “and I wanted to do something special to honor the memory of Muffin and to also help the dogs in need at the shelter.”
The bags of food arrived today on two pallets, were neatly stacked in a food supply room at the shelter, and is already being put to good use.
“We are overwhelmed by such a generous donation from Mr. Jordan,” said Sybil Soukup, Executive Director of the Humane Society of North Iowa. “He has donated half of the year’s dog food supply, saving us considerable expense. We are extremely grateful,” concluded Soukup.
