Lynchburg Humane Society will host a special event titled Calaeb’s Canines on
Saturday July 3rd, 2021 during open hours of 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. Calaeb was a young member of our
community who was the definition of a “dog person” with a deep passion for animal rescue and care.
His life was tragically cut short but his monumental impact and legacy remain steadfast. Calaeb’s 15th
birthday is July 4th so to honor his memory the first 15 dog adoptions (excluding VIPs) on Saturday
have been sponsored. This event has been met with an outpouring of support from sponsors as well
including Biscuitville, who is providing a special heart shaped version of their popular dog biscuits.
Penzey’s spices is providing support as well as special “choose love” bandanas for the dogs, and
numerous others will participate. Calaeb’s younger brother will be fundraising and donating all
proceeds back to the shelter as his birthday gift to his brother.
Said Michelle Thomas, director of development “We are so very grateful that Calaeb’s family chose to
honor his life in such a meaningful way by sponsoring so many pet adoptions. Here at the Lynchburg
Humane Society we rely on community donations to help fund our operations and these gifts will help
so many pets. We hope many will come to the center on July 3rd to celebrate this amazing young man
and his love of animals.”
