PAGOSA PENGUIN PLUNGE 2015
Penguin Plunge Title

Update 2/16/15: The Humane Society of Pagosa Springs (HSPS) was fortunate to have three intrepid folks take the plunge into the San Juan River during Sunday's Penguin Plunge fundraiser for local non-profits. Brandy Scearcy, Pat White and Gerry Cepon's heroics raised over $3,300 for the dogs and cats at the animal shelter. Brandy is a shelter employee who volunteered to freeze for the critters on her day off, Pat, and his wife Karen, often volunteer in our administration office and at fundraisers, and Gerry frequently volunteers at the animal shelter walking and socializing the dogs. The air temperature on Sunday may have been spring-like and balmy, but the water in the San Juan was somewhere north of frigid. HSPS owes a huge thank-you to Brandy, Pat and Gerry for going above-and-beyond the call of duty. The HSPS animal shelter operates at a significant financial loss each year caring for the lost, stray and homeless dogs and cats in our community. The money raised during the Penguin Plunge will help cover some of the cost of food and medical care for the more than five-hundred animals that will enter the shelter this year. Our gratitude goes out to the generosity of our plungers and everyone who made a pledge in support of their efforts. Members of the Pagosa Fire Dive Team and Pagosa EMS were on hand to help out the plungers but, fortunately, no one needed assistance this year. Following are photos from Sunday's plunge into the San Juan River:
