The group gave the shelter all the proceeds from the Jack Hanna “Into the Wild” event they hosted last month at the Pzazz Entertainment Complex. It was a sold out show that totaled $26,641.23, which is now in the hands of the humane society. Kelli Taeger with the society’s board of directors, says they were overwhelmed to receive such a donation…

They plan to use the money to start a medical fund for animals who need extra care.
