Recently, the John J. Hemmingson Foundation donated $250,000 to Companions Animal Center in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. John is a dog lover, whose own adorable pooch – Hailey Hemmingson – was adopted in Hailey, ID.
CAC is currently in the middle of a capital campaign to fund the nearly complete construction of their new facility. This facility expands the capacity for CAC, a no kill shelter, and will provide more space for veterinary, critical care, and other key services. You can contribute on their website or find pets who need loving homes at https://www.companionsanimalcenter.org/
In addition, Architerra – which is part of John’s Lakeside Companies portfolio – also recently presented the Companions Animal Center with a check for $33,000. A portion of every home sold in 2022 was earmarked for this wonderful cause to make this donation possible. The Companions Animal Center provides critical services to the Coeur d’Alene area, and the team at Architerra loves supporting this local charity that has such a big impact on the region.You can read more about Architerra’s ongoing partnership with the Kootenai Humane Society here.
