David Spade, star of the CBS hit Rules of Engagement, is supporting the Humane Society of the White Mountains in Lakeside, Arizona, by donating a much-needed $10,000 to the shelter where his mother is an active volunteer.
The donation, which arrived last week and follows the actor’s visit there last month, will go towards building a new puppy yard and bigger dog park.
The Humane Society of the White Mountains shelter director Anna-Marie Rea addressed reports on websites that the shelter is falling apart and on the verge of closing. “The roof is not falling down,” Rea said. “We just got a fresh paint job outside … and a nice new fence around the perimeter.”
Services currently offered by the shelter include free pet ID Tags, lost and found services, pet adoptions, spay and neutering, animal rescue, as well as discount rabies clinics – you can find more information and view pets for adoption at the White Mountains Humane Society website www.hswm.org.
Spade is known for helping his home state of Arizona in the past. Last year he donated $25,000 to the family of a slain Arizona police officer, as well as donating $15,000 to his alma mater, Saguro High School.
