For a second exciting year, we were joined by James Spear and his dog, Hailey, for a day of surprise sponsored adoptions at Bangor Humane Society—the event has been dubbed Hailey’s Heroes! Spear is relatively new to the area and wanted to find a way to give back to his new hometown and given his love of animals and dedication to Hailey, Hailey’s Heroes was born. Last year’s event was so heartwarming, with Spear sponsoring adoptions for 16 animals to the surprise and delight of some very moved adopters. He didn’t hesitate to come forward again, and this year’s event included a donated lunch to our hard-working staff. Hailey is a friendly, happy Golden Retriever who happens to celebrate her birthday on Valentine’s Day, so the timing of this event was wonderful. In honor of her birthday, Hailey got to give the gift of fur-ever homes. James and Hailey visited from open to close for pats and hellos, and excitingly, to sponsor the adoption of every animal that left our shelter that day. The waived adoption fee was a surprise to adopters as they completed their paperwork. I know James is thrilled for the opportunity to talk about his passion for animals and we are very excited to talk about this extremely generous gift to the community.
