After several people suggested many other deserving charities, Baby Gunn’s Animal Rescue was chosen for a portion of Hurts Donuts sales to go toward while the business is in Paris today.
Carla Stowe, Baby Gunn’s Animal Rescue president, expressed her excitement early Monday morning after she received word about Hurts Donut’s choice.
“I’m coming from Maryland, and this is great news to come home to,” Stowe said.
Tiffany Spangler, one of the many who voted for Baby Gunn’s, said she believes in the animal rescue’s cause.
“I voted for them because every animal deserves a chance at life despite their circumstances,” said Spangler, “and Baby Gunn’s offers that since it is a no-kill, foster-based animal rescue.”
Nikki Selby, sale/marketing manager, said Baby Gunn’s was chosen “not only because they are a passionate and worthwhile organization, but because they are a local favorite.”
Selby said Baby Gunn’s received about 200 votes, out of the about 800 votes in total.
“Baby Gunn’s gets no government funding and all their proceeds come from donations,” said Selby. “We would like to help them on their mission of fostering animals in homes and giving them all the proper care they need.”
She said her parents own two Hurts Donuts locations in Frisco and Fort Worth.
“We decide to partner with local charities because our Facebook community has given us so much, and we’d be nowhere without them,” said Selby. “Doing these fundraising events is a way for us to give back to the wonderful communities that support us and band together every week to vote on a new city for us to visit”
Hurts Donuts will be at Paris Harley-Davidson at noon.
Baby Gunn’s Animal Rescue will also have basket sales set up alongside Hurts Donut’s. Tickets for a chance to win either a man- or woman-specific basket are $1 per ticket or $5 for six.
